Jaime Goode, B.A, M.S., Ph.D. is a Fluvial Geomorphologist and Assistant Professor at the College of Idaho. Dr. Goode will give a presentation on the Fundamentals of Fluvial Geomorphology; explaining the principles and processes of natural river development and maintenance. Jaime will discuss these principles as they apply to rivers around the world, her personal experience on rivers in Scotland, Peru and right here in and along the Boise River.

Dr. Goode’s interdisciplinary interests span from climate change effects on stream morphology and aquatic habitat to complex interactions among hydraulics, sediment, transport, and erosion in bedrock streams. As a scientist, she studies many aspects of river systems and their connections to landscapes, ecosystems, climate, and society. She has worked, taught, and explored on rivers all over the US and abroad with climates ranging from neotropical to semi-arid. Currently, as an Assistant Professor in Geosciences and Environmental Studies at The College of Idaho, she teaches a range of field-based courses, while maintaining an active research program that incorporates undergraduate students in field studies related to climate change and physical and ecological processes in mountain river systems.

Dr. Goode’s presentation will set the stage for a subsequent BREN/IDAWRA presentation on the Fundamentals of River Restoration, which will be given by Dr. Rob Tiedemann at the same location on November 14th.
