Geomorphology of Johnson Creek

Early this spring environmental industry professionals from across the Portland Metropolitan Area flocked to their computers for a very exciting presentation on the geomorphology of Johnson Creek.

Geomorphology is the study of landforms and landform evolution. The topic traditionally has been studied both qualitatively, which is the description of landforms, and quantitatively, which is process-based and describes forces acting on Earth’s surface to produce landforms and landform change.

In a presentation led by Wolf Water Resources we traveled through time and space to learn about the history of Johnson Creek and how the history of the creek affects its future! Did you know that Johnson Creek may have once flowed right into the Columbia River? Learn all about it below!
