waterSHEDlab is a research and teaching lab at the University of Washington Tacoma focused on a better understanding of contemporary issues in geomorphology and Earth surface processes, including in fluvial, lacustrine, alpine, glacial and coastal environments. We use a combination of field methods, remote sensing and GIS, in our research efforts.
