Fluvial Geomorphic Assessment

Fluvial geomorphology is the study of how water, in the form of rivers, streams and wetlands, has shaped the landscape around us. We provide clients with expert consultation in fluvial geomorphic assessment, historic aerial photo analysis, and environmental geology and hydrogeology focused on channel migration, surface water systems, hyporheic groundwater, shallow unconfined aquifers, bank and slope stability and assessment of earth surface processes that influence ecosystems, landscape evolution and human communities. NSD geomorphologists are also professionally registered as geologists, engineering geologists, hydrologists and hydrogeologists.
