Award to further study Fluvial Geomorphology

With the help of a prestigious national science research grant, a scientist at the University of Idaho’s Center for Ecohydraulics Research in Boise, will support the research work of four university students, fund a 10th grade Women in Science summer camp, and investigate how logging and other human activities affect sedimentation in rivers.

The $455,000, five-year award for Elowyn Yager, assistant professor at CER, comes from the National Science Foundation’s Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) grant, which is the organization’s most prestigious award in support of junior faculty. It will support Yager’s work over the next five years in recognition of her excellence in research and education, and the integration of the two.
