Fluvial-sediment and related hydrology training at client’s classroom and/or field venues (by the 1996-2013 leader of USGS Water-Mission Area (USGS-WMA) fluvial-sediment data-collection and analysis training ).


Data acquisition, review, analysis (by a lead reviewer of USGS-WMA sediment basic-data and research programs, 1993-2013).

Program Design & Evaluation

Develop or evaluation approaches to identifying and quantifying the nature of fluvial-sediment challenges (by the designer or proposer of local, regional, national, and world-wide sediment-monitoring protocols and programs as the USGS Office of Surface Water’s National Sedimentologist.

Problem Identification & Guidance

Evaluate client’s need and problem description to identify the tractability of quantifying the problem in a cost-effective manner (by a reviewer of USGS sediment proposals and programs).

Analysis & Summary of Program Information

Program or data summary, such as computation of sediment loads in suspension, as bedload, and as total load; discrete or as public written or oral reports, are provided (by the author of over 100 peer-reviewed technical reports, journal articles, conference proceedings, and abstracts, and an invited speaker at national and international venues).
