... is a professor of geomorphology and hydrology at the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He conducts field and theoretical research in fluvial geomorphology and in the application of hydrology, sediment transport, and geomorphology to landscape management and hazard analysis.
From page 299...
... John Kupfer is professor and chair in the Department of Geography and senior associate faculty in the Environment and Sustainability Program at the University of South Carolina, Columbia. As a landscape ecologist and biogeographer, he conducts research that couples fieldwork with spatial analysis and modeling using geographic information systems to explore the interactive effects of landscape transformation, nonnative species, and disturbances such as flooding, fire, and hurricanes on plant and animal communities.
