UPDATED — Only debris left to clean up as Elwha River is free to travel its own path [ **WITH VIDEO ** ]
The talk will be at Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 2333 San Juan Ave.
Admission is free, but a donation of $5 is suggested.
Miller will talk about how the coastal zone is responding to the removal of the dams and rapid erosion of sediment impounded behind them.
Based at Peninsula College, Miller focuses his research, education and outreach on natural coastal hazards on the Olympic Peninsula, including impacts of climate change, tsunamis and chronic erosion.
He has a bachelor's degree in marine ecology from Western Washington University and earned his doctorate in oceanography from the University of California-Santa Cruz in 2011.
Miller is one of the key scientists working on the Elwha Nearshore Consortium, a group of scientists and managers who joined together to understand and promote the nearshore restoration associated with the Elwha dam removals.
The lecture is sponsored by the Jefferson Land Trust Geology Group.
