Join the Mazama Conservation Committee for the final segment of Melting Mountains: More Than A Decade Later, an online series of presentations on the impact of climate change on alpine environments.<br> <br> The Cascade Mountains take their name from the myriad rushing waters that drain the slopes of this volcanic range. But where does all this water come from, and what will happen to it in the future as the climate warms? This talk will explore the fascinating linkages among the geology and evolution of the mountain range, the geography of water, and patterns of streamflow now and in the future.

His involvement with rivers began as a decade-long career as a whitewater river guide on western US rivers. He received his Ph.D. in fluvial geomorphology from Johns Hopkins University in 1986 and began work for the research branch of the U.S. Forest Service. His research focuses on understanding how stream networks, watersheds, and landscapes respond to geomorphic changes due to land use, dams and dam removal, volcanic eruptions, and climate changes in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. He is a Fellow of both the American Geophysical Union and the Geological Society of America, and is President-Elect of the Earth and Planetary Surface Processes section of AGU.
