Understanding how water or wind can affect landform is critical to assessing or predicting hazards such as flooding and landslides.

Our geomorphology experts guide assessments and design solutions for land movement, erosion, river control and restoration, and coastal protection. They assess sediment transport, drainage basins, floodplains, tidelands, and rivers. Armed with this knowledge, they collaborate with engineering teams to mitigate hazards through natural processes or environmental hydrologic solutions. Our geologists balance long-term restoration goals that ultimately mitigate hazards with short-term protection.
