Ezekiel Kuehn M.S. - Geomorphologist / Environmental Scientist

Education

B.S. Environmental Science  Missouri State University

M.S. Geospatial Sciences in Fluvial Geomorphology  Missouri State University

Level 1, 2, 3, and 4 of the Rosgen Natural Channel Design classes

            Mr. Kuehn started working with MO streams as an intern at Ozarks Environmental and Water Resources Institute (OEWRI) as a Research Assistant, where he co-authored several technical reports on water quality and bank erosion in the James River Basin near Springfield, MO.  Furthermore, Mr. Kuehn assisted the U.S. Fish Wildlife Service through OWERI to map the geographical extent and levels of lead contamination in streams that drain the Old Lead Belt and the Viburnum Trend mining areas in eastern Missouri. Working with the James River Basin Partnership through OWERI, Mr. Kuehn evaluated the effectiveness of the Riparian Conservation Easements and modeled the contributions of bank erosion to the total suspended sediment load in the James and Finley Rivers. All of the projects mentioned involved statistical analysis, soil sampling and testing, field assessments, mapping, and advanced remote sensing techniques. Mr. Kuehn also worked for the Missouri Department of Conservation, where he assessed stream and wetland habitats with the southwest region fisheries division.

            Mr. Kuehn grew up in Branson, MO on the banks of Lake Taneycomo where he learned to appreciate and covet the life and sense of community a river, lake, or wetland creates and sustains,  thus making preserving, enhancing, and restoring MO wetlands one of his life missions.
