Ben Johnson

Ben brings a multidisciplinary approach to coastal projects, where he combines his geology and aquatic habitat monitoring experience to guide his work. 

Ben’s undergraduate research at Western Washington University investigated the role of bed structure and sediment supply on grain mobility in gravel-bedded rivers, and he is interested in both the grain-scale details and ecosystem wide impacts of geomorphic processes. 

Ben has expertise with spatial analysis (GIS), topographic surveying (RTK GPS, total station, drone-based structure from motion), and geomorphic and habitat assessments. 

His field experience spans all Puget Sound counties in support of shore change analyses, sea level rise exposure assessments, bulkhead removal and soft-shore protection design, restoration effectiveness monitoring, and slope stability investigations.
