Research Physical Scientist, Lead for Ewn Fluvial Chapters, Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory, ERDC


Dr. Haring is a Research Physical Scientist in the River Engineering Branch of the Coastal Hydraulics Laboratory-Engineering Research & Development Center (ERDC).  His responsibilities include leading research and development in water resource studies including river engineering and mechanics, geomorphology, sediment management, watershed assessments and USACE’s Engineering With Nature® initiative. His current research is focused on developing a restoration manual to provide updated guidance on inland fluvial applications for Engineering With Nature®.  Another research focus is the development of FluvialGeomorph, a watershed assessment tool that identifies EWN-type natural channel characteristics and maps potential areas of instability within the channel reach.
