County Employee’s Work to be featured in Scientific Journal
(Richland PIO) – A Richland County employee will have his extensive research published in the Journal (Richland PIO) – A Richland County employee will have his extensive research published in the Journal of Geomorphology (Elsevier).
Tyler Dearman, Watershed Program Coordinator in the Stormwater Management Division, co-authored “Patterns of Legacy Sediment Deposits in a Small South Carolina Piedmont Catchment, USA” (Dearman, T.L., and James, L.A., 2019). The paper has passed peer-review and been accepted for publication.
“I focused my study on river and water driven sediment deposition because I was interested in how rivers and streams change through time and the impacts that humans play in the physical environment,” said Dearman. “So much talk about human environmental impacts focuses on biologic or climatic changes and we often forget to recognize that the physical environment also is impacted by our decisions.”
Geomorphology publishes peer-reviewed works from fundamental theory and science to applied research of relevance to sustainable management of the environment.
“Tyler’s research can provide valuable insight on the way we approach programs,” said Synithia Williams, Stormwater General Manager, “This is a tremendous asset as we continue to develop new Stormwater and Watershed projects.”
The new edition of the journal will be published later this year.
