The University of Colorado has received a $4,600 grant from the National Science Foundation to study the Lake Missoula floods, which in prehistoric times covered what is now the northwestern United States.

Known geological evidence of floods and some standard hydraulic techniques will be used to reconstruct the floods, including how much water was released in the flood flow and how fast it was moving, and how these flows were related to the transportation of sediments.
