Geomorphology

Geomorphology is a strange word.  Its meaning is “the branch of geology that studies the characteristics and configuration and evolution of rocks and land forms.”  The one compound that has had the largest impact on land forms is water.  Understanding how water impacts different geological materials such as clays, sands, silts, rock, and loams becomes the study of streams and how the banks shift, relocate, and reshape.  This understanding helps address how these changes affect our built environment.  The engineers at Walter P Moore study the movement of water and its effects on the surroundings to develop better protection systems that are environmentally compatible with nature.  This study leads to erosion protection, stream bank restoration and scour studies to protect the built environment using environmentally compatible systems.
