Faculty Research

Below are research interests of some of the faculty involved in the Environmental Science Program.

 

SW-GW Interaction
Is phosphorus stored in deep sediments along losing streams?
What forms of phosphorus occur?  Can the P be re-released into streams from oxidation changes?

 

Gully erosion studies
How fast do gullies erode here?  Are there differences related to geologic substrate, soil type?

 

Wetlands Studies
How do soil characteristics change with geologic setting of wetland? What are the geomorphic controls on Texas bogs?  Does peat accumulation change over time? What are the downcore changes in soil characteristics and quality?

 

Infiltration
How much water moves off a site versus infiltration?  How is this affected by differences in vegetation? How will this changes with changes in climate?

 

Plant uptake of antibiotics

 Environmental fate of pharmaceuticals in terrestrial environment.
