Our lab studies the geological evolution of coastal environments, such as beaches, dunes, barrier islands, wetlands, and estuaries.  Emphasis is placed on process-based investigations into the dynamics of these environments and how they might evolve in the future with changing conditions.  Our research is field-based and aimed at discerning the geomorphology, sedimentology and geologic history of coastal environments.  We use these data to parameterize coastal change models as well as to assist coastal managers in decision-making.
