Research interests

  • Chris is currently investigating the possibility of extracting depth averaged sediment loads for global rivers from satellite imagery. The research involves using a mixture of in-situ measurements, acoustic techniques, and modelling to link variations in sediment flux to catchment properties. This can then be used to explore the drivers of global sediment flux to the oceans over time.  
  • His previous research focussed on the interactions between vegetation and flow, using novel UAV based sensing systems to extract vegetation structure and compare this to morphological change at a variety of scales.
