John received the award for his research proposal Sediment-ecological connectivity: exploring the links between tributary erosion and floodplain forest establishment in a large river basin. John’s research will use the chemical composition of tributary source sediment and downstream floodplain sink sediment to determine the contributions of each tributary watershed to the downstream floodplain sediments that support cottonwood gallery forest.
