Research

research overview

  • Dr. Lininger's research is focused on river and floodplain dynamics and the interactions between geomorphic processes and ecological processes. She is particularly interested in the influence of river and floodplain processes on the flux and storage of organic carbon; interactions between downed large wood, vegetation, and geomorphic processes; river and floodplain dynamics in the Sub-Arctic and Arctic; and coupled natural-human systems research related to rivers. Much of her research has been focused on large floodplain rivers, and she incorporates fieldwork, statistical modeling, and remote sensing methods into her work.
