Patrick Belmont is a hydrologist and geomorphologist. His research has advanced understanding of how landscapes and rivers change over time and the implications for water quantity and quality, flood risk, water resource management, and ecosystem health. Much of his current work focuses on predicting the impacts of climate change, with an emphasis on how continued increases in wildfire are likely to impact water supply and fish populations in Utah and the Intermountain West. 

Patrick obtained his PhD in Earth and Environmental Sciences at Lehigh University in 2007 and spent two years as a post-doctoral researcher in Civil and Environmental Engineering at University of Minnesota prior to starting at Utah State University. He spent the 2016-2017 academic year in residence at the National University of Ireland, Galway.
