AGU Eos highlights research by Ryan Morrison

Ryan MorrisonResearch by Associate Professor Ryan Morrison is featured in a science news article by Eos, the American Geophysical Union’s news outlet. The article describes a study co-authored by Morrison and led by Richard Knox from Colorado State University’s Department of Geosciences that found the National Levee Database accounts for just one-fifth of the country’s total levee count.

The research team used machine learning to detect the artificial levees that are missing from the database. The study, “Identification of Artificial Levees in the Contiguous United States,” is published in Water Resources Research.
