Research Interests

The Rodriguez Lab generally uses the principles of sedimentology and stratigraphy to examine the response of coastal depositional environments to sea-level rise, changes in storminess, and human impacts. We study all coastal environments from rivers to the inner continental shelf. Research is field based and we collect a variety of different types of data, including sedimentologic, radiometric, seismic, and remote sensing.

Research and Activities

  • Human impacts on coastal sedimentation
  • Response of Barrier Islands to storms and sea-level rise
  • Oyster reef growth
  • Salt marsh evolution
