Wetlands and Aquatic Systems
Research emphasis is on environmental pedology investigating the relationship of soils to landscape, vegetation, and hydrology as well as interpretation of land use; exploring near coast subaqueous soils; modeling of ground-penetrating radar (GPR) data to analysis subsurface variability; and detecting pedological-human interactions to study the genesis of soils.
Recent studies include:
- Heavy Metal Contamination of Soils in an Ecologically Enhanced Urban Storm Water Retention Basin.
- Observations and Characterization of Subaqueous Soils and Sea Grasses in a Recently Constructed Habitat in the Indian River Lagoon Florida
- Comparison of Archaeological Sites and Gravesites with Ground-Penetrating Radar and Soil Analyses
- Biogeochemical Significance of Channel Substrate in Florida Coastal Spring-fed Rivers
