Fluvial geomorphology


Brett is a Professional Geoscientist and a fluvial geomorphologist interested in how rivers respond to land-use and environmental changes. His research group is conducting laboratory experiments and field studies as part of a larger effort to improve our understanding of stream channel (in)stability, fish habitat, bed material transport and the hazards associated with geomorphic processes. In particular, his group is focused on the influence of disturbances such as extreme weather events, forest fires, and land use changes on channel morphodynamics. His team also studies the effects of large wood on sediment transport dynamics and the influence of hydropower generation on stream channel processes.
