New Hydrogeomorphic Floodplain Model Paper Published

The master’s work of Kara Scheel has been published in JAWRA. This was an exciting collaboration with Fernando Nardi and Antonio Annis from the University of Foreigners in Perugia, Italy, in which we applied a hydrogeomorphic floodping mapping model to explore the impacts of levees of floodplain inundation. Congrats to Kara! Scheel, K., R.R. Morrison, A. Annis, and F. Nardi. 2019. “Understanding the Large‐Scale Influence of Levees on Floodplain Connectivity Using a Hydrogeomorphic Approach.
