Director, Sedimentary Systems Lab

My research focuses on the stratigraphy and dynamics of depositional sedimentary systems. Scales of interest range from detailed flow structures and sedimentation in rivers to whole system behavior of coastal systems and river belts.

Graham Johnston

M.S. student in Geological Sciences

My primary research interests are sedimentology, geomorphology, and hydrogeology. I am pursuing my master’s degree while researching fluvial levee formations throughout the state of Indiana. I hope to better understand the relationship between suspended sediment transport during flooding events and the frequency and morphology of levee formations along river channels. (link to CV)

Thesis Project: Ecogeomorphic feebacks in Wax Lake Delta, LA

My research focuses on the interactions and feedbacks between the ecological and geomorphic components of coastal deltaic systems. I use a combination of remote sensing, field, and numerical modeling techniques in my ecogeomorphic studies of these systems. My current research focuses on the ecogeomorphic development of the coastal freshwater deltaic system of Wax Lake Delta in south-central Louisiana. (link to CV)

Jeff Valenza

Ph.D. student in Geological Sciences

I love geology for the story that is revealed by careful observation and interpretation of the rock record. In particular, I am interested in sedimentology, stratigraphy, and geomorphology. Currently, I am researching fluvial channel avulsions using numerical modelling, remote sensing, and field observations. (link to CV)
