Scope/Content: Abstract: The 2007 removal of the Marmot Dam in Oregon presented a unique opportunity to understand the ecological and geomorphological effects of dam removal. Graduate student Chuck Podolak, along with five undergraduate researchers, is studying the effects and changes caused by dam removal. The research team consisted of five undergraduate students, Barbara Palomo, Katie Trifone, Dajana Jurk, Kimberly DeVillier, and Timothy Shin. Individual research projects are completed by the undergraduate students to complement Chuck Podolak's work. Research worked on in these studies include: study of stream gages along the Sandy River to predict water flow, interpolate and investigate bed-surface changes, and effects of sudden increase in sediment load on downstream fining and Grain Size Distribution on bars and islands within the Sandy. Researchers found interesting results; these conclusions form a baseline for future research.
