Science Serving Maryland's Coasts

REU Mentor Profile
Cindy Palinkas, Ph.D.

Horn Point Laboratory

Research Topics: 
Benthic Environment

Research Interests: 

My primary research interests focus on sediment transport and deposition in intertidal, fluvial, and estuarine environments. I am especially interested in feedbacks between sediment and vegetation dynamics, the response of tidal marshes to environmental change, and the effects of coastal structures on nearshore sedimentation.
