Research & Scholarship Interests
Department Research Areas
MES/CEE Assistant Professor Samuel Munoz will be leading a $595K NSF grant for "Extreme floods on the lower Mississippi River in the context of late Holocene climatic variability" in collaboration with Liviu Giosan and Jeffrey Donnelly from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Zhixiong Shen from Coastal Carolina University.
MES/CEE Assistant Professor Samuel Munoz is researching how the re-engineering of the Mississippi River to straighten and channelize it has had the unintended consequences of increasing the risk of severe flooding.
