Marine Sedimentary Processes:
Elwha Dam Removal Impacts
The biggest dam removal in U.S. history is underway on the Olympic Peninsula’s Elwha
River, and major changes are happening in the marine enironment. One of the effects
of this unprecedented restoration effort is the input of millions of tons of sediment
into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. This apprenticeship gives you the opportunity to get
involved in an ongoing research project focused on the fate of this material, while
learning about geologic processes and gaining valuable scientific research experience!
15-credit apprenticeship includes:
Lectures on local geology, river systems, and coastal environments
Instruction in laboratory and research techniques
Two science cruises to the Elwha Delta
Camping trip to the Elwha watershed with hikes to the river and reservoir beds
Weekly scientific readings and informal discussions (fuel for the final paper)
Individual research projects on course-related topics of students’ choosing
Plan on learning about and experiencing local environments, practical science
techniques, and a truly historic restoration project happening NOW.
*Disclaimer: Past students highly recommend this course for building resumes/CVs, gaining
research and field experience, and enjoying spring quarter in the fabulous San Juan Islands.
