Evolution of the South Fork Eel River watershed: The known unknowns

About Nicole Gasparini
Geomorphologist; key developer of a recent model called LandLab which handles temporal scales from including individual rainfall and flood events, up to long-time landscape evolution in which climate, lithology, and tectonics can be incorporated. She also works on questions of tectonic geomorphology, including controls on the evolution of the Andes and Puerto Rico.
