Dallon Weathers has been working as a Coastal Geologist in Louisiana for the past 9 years. He is a Coastal Scientist within the Physical Processes and Sediment Systems group at The Water Institute of the Gulf, where his main interests are the physical processes and geomorphology of rivers, inlets, deltas, and beaches. In pursuing his research, Mr. Weathers has developed technical expertise in hydrographic and geophysical surveying, oceanographic instrumentation deployment, as well as data modeling and analysis with geographic information systems (GIS).
Before joining the Institute, Mr. Weathers was a research associate at the University of New Orleans’ Pontchartrain Institute for Environmental Sciences. While at UNO, he was a member of the team that developed and implemented the Barrier Shoreline Morphology Model component of Louisiana’s 2012 Coastal Master Plan. In addition to managing model runs and data input-output with other modeling teams, Weathers had a lead role in the development of the sea level rise and subsidence component of the model, as well as a module that updates barrier island digital elevation models by applying potential restoration projects digitally per the design specifications.
