We foster an interdisciplinary, predictive approach to the investigation of how landscape and ecosystems co-evolve.
The National Center of Earth-surface Dynamics (NCED) was developed to build our scientific understanding of, and therefore our predictive ability about, the near-surface Earth environment, with the aim of transforming management and restoration of the Earth's surface.
Our research concentrates on channel networks (rivers) and their surroundings. We approach these networks from a source-to-sink perspective, using our three research programs (Integrated Programs or IPs) to look at:
individual stream reaches (Streams), and
depositional systems (Deltas).
