We study WATER! We are fascinated by how it shapes the surface of our planet, and how it creates and sustains the habitats that are essential for life. Based at the Department of Geography at the University of Montreal, the Watershed Science Research Group investigates the processes that control the storage and flow of water. We are particularly interested in the role of hydrogeomorphic and hydroecologic processes in sustaining freshwater ecosystems. We use field studies and field experiments to study hydrological processes at sites in eastern Canada; from urbanizing southern watersheds to high arctic permafrost settings.
