Hydrology & Low-Temperature Geochemistry

Geochemistry, Geothermal Energy, Groundwater, Groundwater Remediation


Research activity in hydrogeology includes wellhead protection in confined to semi-confined aquifers, the relationships between stream losses and water table depths, the identification and geochemical characterization of groundwater recharge to surface streams and groundwater remediation. Research in low-temperature geochemistry includes fluid-rock interactions in tectonically-active areas, environmental and energy geoscience problems, such as unconventional fuels, geothermal energy, nuclear waste and geologic sequestration of CO2.
