Robert S. Mansell
Professor Emeritus, Vadose Zone Hydrology
Departmental Research Areas:
- Management of Nutrients, Pesticides, and Wastes
- Wetlands and Aquatic Systems
Utilizes mathematical models and experiments to investigate the influence of coupled water and heat flows upon chemical transport in sandy Florida soils. Solutes of interest include nutrient cations/anions, and contaminants such as pesticides, organic lead and hydrazine.
