Research Summary

Dr. Rodriguez’s research areas are coastal geology, sedimentology and ecogeomorphology. He is particularly interested in examining how coastal depositional environments respond to changes in sea level, storminess, and land use.
Current and recent research projects include
  • Examining the Holocene evolution of estuarine environments along the Northern
Gulf of Mexico and mid Atlantic margins.
  • Evaluating the controls on oyster-reef and saltmarsh accretion.
  • Examining variations in beach erosion and barrier-island evolution 
and morphodynamics.
  • Assessing the impacts of climate change and associated sea-level
 rise on coastal areas.
  • Developing coastal carbon budgets and predictive models.


Please contact Dr. Rodriguez if you are interested in graduate studies or would like to learn more about the research his lab is conducting.
