Celeste Wieting received the inaugural Student Research Award from the Colorado Riparian Association!

Celeste’s research focuses on linking flow and sediment dynamics to stream channel response following invasive vegetation removal in order to quantify the magnitude of landscape change and inform management of post-removal channel behavior. Celeste was chosen based not only upon her research, but also because of her passion for riparian conservation and dedication to preserving vital riparian landscapes.

Juli Scamardo received an AGeS (Awards for Geochronology Student Research) grant from the Geological Society of America!

Juli’s research focuses on understanding sediment dynamics in ephemeral streams. She will use the grant to calculate residence times of sediment in floodplains using optically stimulated luminescence with the goal of determining the influence of disturbance frequency on geomorphic heterogeneity.
