United States Virgin Islands


Jenny Curtis is a process geomorphologist with the USGS California Water Science Center. Her office is located in Eureka, CA and in 1999 she joined the Regional Watershed Hydrology Research Group. For the past 20 years she has investigated “source to sink” water and sediment dynamics with research areas that range from mountain source areas, to alluvial lowlands, the estuarine interface and oceanic depositional systems. Recent investigations include geomorphic mapping to support river restoration, sediment deposition in tidal marshes and floodplains, sediment studies to support dam removal, and water balance studies under historic and future climates.
