Biography

 

Geographic Areas: California, Bay Area, Sierra Nevada

Jerry Davis's research focuses on geomorphological field methods, related hydrological processes and biogeomorphic interaction, low-altitude remote sensing such as terrestrial LiDAR, and GIS surface modeling in investigating the response of streams and hillslopes to disturbances, assessment of stream restoration projects, and karst systems. Current projects include sites in coastal creeks impacted by urbanization, the northern Sierran montane meadows impacted by grazing and timber extraction, and the Marble Mountains Karst. GISc and environmental data science analysis methods focus on R, Python and ArcGIS.  GitHub:  @spedunkler
