Why Rivers Flood, program speaker Karin Boyd

This program is open to the public.
Do you know the difference between a thalweg and a sculpin? One relates to fluvial morphology and the other is a fish. Karin Boyd is an acknowledged leader in fluvial morphology. Her main professional interests are determining how physical conditions and human influences collectively affect the form and behavior of the river systems, and applying this information to develop strategies for remediation, restoration, and long-term resource management. She has worked in kangaroo infested streams in Australia, snake invested streams in Mississippi and bulldozer infested streams in Montana. With this opportunity to learn about these concepts, Bitterroot residents will gain a better understanding of the impacts of construction projects near waterways.
