Robin Welling was awarded first place Student Presentation at 2018 Montana American Water Resources Association (AWRA) conference. Robin Welling highlighted key findings from research she is conducting with advisor Andrew Wilcox as part of a NSF-supported project exploring the morphologic and vegetative controls on sediment connectivity in mountain landscapes. They observe that the influence of instream wood on sediment routing in headwater mountain streams varies with alluvial cover, which has implications for aquatic habitat and predicting stream response to hillslope disturbances that deliver wood and sediment to channels.
