Associate Professor Sergio Fagherazzi delivers the Christiaan Brunings Lecture at Utrecht University in The Netherlands on January 10. The symposium brings together scientists, practitioners, and managers of rivers and estuaries, with keynotes given by leading international scientists. Dr. Fagherazzi’s talk is entitled “Non-Linear Dynamics Determine the Fate of Salt Marshes.”
William Nardin, currently a postdoc at BU, has joined the faculty at the University of Maryland as assistant professor. During his PhD William worked at BU on delta morphodynamics with associate professor Sergio Fagherazzi’s research group. During his first postdoc, he worked on mangrove dynamics in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam with Professors Fagherazzi and Curtis Woodcock. He is currently part of the NSF National Center for Earth-Surface Dynamics 2 Synthesis Postdoc program with UC Berkeley, University of Virginia, and BU.
PhD student William Kearney and Associate Professor Sergio Fagherazzi publish in Nature Communications
PhD student William Kearney and Associate Professor Sergio Fagherazzi have published a paper in Nature Communications entitled “Salt marsh vegetation promotes efficient tidal channel networks.”
Associate Professor Sergio Fagherazzi has received an award from the National Science Foundation entitled, “LTER-Plum Island Ecosystems: Dynamics of coastal ecosystems in a region of rapid climate change, sea-level rise.” The research will be carried out in Plum Island Sound, Massachusetts, in collaboration with the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole.
PhD student William Kearney and Associate Professor Sergio Fagherazzi have published “Salt marsh vegetation promotes efficient tidal channel networks” in Nature Communications.
The paper “Bottom sediment affect Sonneratia mangrove forests in the prograding Mekong delta, Vietnam” was published in Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science and can be read here.
The paper “Dynamics of a fringe mangrove forest detected by Landsat images in the Mekong river delta, Vietnam” was published in Earth Surface Processes and Landforms and can be read here.
Nardin is first author on both publications; he is a postdoctoral associate working primarily with Professor Fagherazzi. To learn more about Professor Fagherazzi’s work, check out his profile page.

Earth & Environment Associate Professor Sergio Fagherazzi and Professor Curtis Woodcock along with visiting student Daniele la Cecilia published a new paper in the journal Advances in Water Resources.
The paper titled “Interactions between river stage and wetland vegetation detected with a Seasonality Index derived from LANDSAT images in the Apalachicola delta, Florida” focuses on the decline of cypress swamps in Florida. La Cecilia is first author on the paper.

The article titled “A linear relationship between wave power and erosion determines salt-marsh resilience to violent storms and hurricanes” is available now online.
The article was also featured in a news article released by the US Geological Survey. The article “Normal Weather Drives Salt Marsh Erosion” can be found here.
Leonardi is a PhD candidate in Earth Science; Fagherazzi is her advisor.
