Ryan Morrison Awarded a CSU Colorado Water Center Grant


Ryan Morrison

Each spring the Colorado Water Center (CoWC) funds a select number of Water Research Team, Faculty Fellow, and Education & Engagement Project grants, which catalyze innovative water research, teaching, and engagement through interdisciplinary collaboration and creative scholarship. These awards provide opportunities to accelerate progress in research and enable projects in the academic and experiential realm of water resources.

This year, Dr. Ryan Morrison awarded a Water Fellows award for their research
“Toward understanding the global impacts of human activities on floodplain integrity.” He is joining forces internationally to understand human impacts on floodplain integrity. Leveraging previous research Morrison will identify and compile global datasets and develop methodology to assess global floodplain integrity. Ultimately, they aim to help water and land managers target efforts toward the most impaired floodplains.
