Shawn Higgins, MS
Project Geomorphologist

Shawn specializes in geomorphic assessments in which he analyzes historical changes in channel morphology and evaluates modifications in watershed runoff or sediment transport characteristics. He evaluates ecosystem functions and identifies constraints posed by human impacts on the environment. Shawn is experienced working in forested basins of the Pacific Northwest leading technical analyses in areas such as channel migration, sediment transport, and river channel hydraulics. Shawn extends his expertise in estuarine environments where he has studied tidal wetlands in Puget Sound, the Columbia River Estuary, and San Francisco Bay.
