We are dedicated to understanding how the flow of water mediates geologic and ecologic processes near the earth’s surface. Our research focuses on the exchange of surface water and groundwater (for example, fluid flow between rivers or bays and aquifers). Surface water-groundwater exchange impacts ecosystem health by influencing the movement of nutrients, contaminants, and heat in watersheds.
• Coastal surface water-groundwater interactions
• River restoration
• Coupled processes involving fluid and heat flow, reactive transport, and ecology
• Scaled laboratory and numerical models
