Grace studied BSc Physical Geography at the University of Southampton, developing knowledge of fluvial geomorphology and river basin management. Through fieldwork, she has applied this knowledge to a number of contrasting river systems, using a variety of hydrology and sedimentology sampling techniques. Grace has also gained knowledge of surveying techniques through the use of RTK GPS and dumpy levels to explore topographic change across river … Continue reading Grace Prouse »

Sam is a spatial scientist with a specialisation in fluvial geomorphology. Sam studied fluvial geomorphology at the University of Auckland (New Zealand) under Professor Gary Brierley and Dr Jon Tunnicliffe. His studies focused on utilising high-resolution photogrammetric techniques to analyse channel stability from a catchment management perspective, and involved the use of an unmanned aerial vehicle to capture high resolution data across a large alpine … Continue reading Sam McArthur »
