Graduate research opportunities for 2008-2009 applicants
Geomorphology/hydrology near the margins of salt marshes
: We are seeking an M.S. or Ph.D. student to work on a combined field/modeling study of the dynamics of the boundary between salt marshes and tidal flats. Our field sites are in the Virginia Coast Reserve on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Advisors: Wiberg and McGlathery.
