We’re studying fluvial and coastal sediment transport dynamics in diverse environments ranging from inland deltas to open continental shelves, at temperate and polar latitudes. Our work involves tracking sediment fluxes and particle properties, and pairing these measurements with investigations of sediment deposition to understand the material evolution of coastal systems over human timescales. Current projects include studies of sediment transport on the Beaufort Shelf in northern Alaska, sediment deposition and pathways in Coos Bay, Oregon, and a novel oceanographic sediment calibration using IceSat2 ATLAS data.

Dr. Eidam has recently moved to Oregon State University (CEOAS) (link here). For more information on fluvial and coastal ocean research at UNC, please connect with the following lab groups in EMES:
