Bridge's focus, as primarily that of a sedimentologist, is on relating fluvial processes and morphology to explanation and interpretation of alluvial deposits and sedimentary rocks, so that his main service to geologists is learning more about alluvial forms, processes and deposits over a range of temporal and spatial scales.
Metal contamination in the Big River system of southeastern Missouri has been associated with the oxidative weathering and breakdown of remnant sulfide ores from tailings piles and tailings particles that were transported into the river by fluvial processes. The tailings materials contain remnant ore grains of galena, pyrite, sphalerite, and other minerals.
