Jon Woodruff’s research focuses on coastal, estuarine and fluvial processes, particularly sediment transport and resultant deposition caused by extreme flooding. Woodruff’s group uses flood reconstructions to improve risk assessments and to learn how the magnitude and frequency of flooding changes in response to variations in both climate and landscape.
