Current Research

development of stable isotope techniques for analyzing of local to regional-scale hydrologic processes and variability and application of isotope hydrology, in combination with other methods to investigate water-related issues such as the impact of forestry, mining and past climate changes on aquatic ecosystems; continental and global isotope-system modelling, field-based comparisons of water budgets and hydrologic controls on water quality in several regional lake surveys both in Canada and the US quantitative paleoclimate reconstruction in Bolivia and the circumpolar North GIS applications in isotope hydrology in Arctic Canada
