Surface Water – Groundwater Interactions
Determining groundwater ages in heterogeneous environments.
Quantifying the age of groundwater in complex geological environments remains a challenge for groundwater scientists. We are investigating the limits of current methods and proposing new methods for quantifying these ages. More Information
Determining groundwater discharge and chemistry from multiple aquifers by longitudinal river sampling
This project establishes a new method for estimating the location(s) of groundwater discharge to a river and its chemistry by sampling river water. This method may be particularly useful in remote areas where access to groundwater is limited or impossible, drilling is not an option due to budget constraints, and to identify contamination sources.
