Emily Eidam, Jim Thomson, and their teams are collaborating on two separate but closely related research projects. Thomson's team is trying to understand the impact that larger waves are having on Arctic coastal erosion. Eidam's team, meanwhile, is tracking the journey of the materials that erode from coastal bluffs to understand where they go after they enter the ocean.
