Should Stream-Groundwater Interactions be Used to Establish Significant Nexus Under the Clean Water Act? (flyer)
Michael Gooseff, Associate Professor, Dept of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Penn State

    Stream-groundwater interactions underpin many ecological functions and services of streams. Until recently, investigating these interactions has been done from either the stream's perspective, by adding tracers and interpreting downstream tracer breakthrough curves, or from generating numerical groundwater flow models of the channel and adjacent aquifers. Our research group has been collaboratively developing several new approaches to interpreting stream tracer experimental data and new geophysical techniques to determine the extent of stream water movement into the subsurface. In this presentation, I will discuss new approaches to advancing hydrologic science through these new methods.
