Short Biography

Don is a research hydrologist with the National Research Program specializing in wetland hydrology, water budgets of lakes and wetlands, and hyporheic processes.   Research is focused at the sediment-water interface with an emphasis on understanding processes that control exchanges between groundwater and surface water.  Don also is the coordinator of the Shingobee Headwaters Aquatic Ecosystem Project http://wwwbrr.cr.usgs.gov/projects/SHAEP/ where scientists from USGS and academia work together to study physical, chemical, and biological processes of lakes, wetlands, and streams at a small watershed scale.  Don's interests in groundwater, surface water, and the dynamic sediment-water interface stem from his formative years at Bemidji State University (on the shore of one of Minnesota's 10,000 lakes), the University of Minnesota (on the banks of the Mississippi River), and the University of Colorado (through which Boulder Creek flows).

Understanding Ecosystems & Predicting Ecosystems Change

Climate Variability & Change

Hydrogeology of lakes, wetlands and streams

Don investigates the spatial and temporal variability of groundwater-surface-water exchange in response to episodic and sustained fluvial and hydrologic events.  Research is conducted with colleagues from a plethora of disciplines to better understand processes related to ecological health and sustainability, surface-water and groundwater supply, water quality, and water storage. The significance of these processes with regard to climate change also is investigated through a continuation of three decades of data collection at long-term field sites in North Dakota, Minnesota, and New Hampshire. 

 

Current research topics and locations include:

 

  Ground-water surface-water exchange in hyporheic settings, CA, CO, MN, PA

  Significance of ground-water discharge to nutrient loading in Puget Sound, WA

  Relating geophysics and seepage along shoreline margins, NH, WA

  Hydrology of lakes and wetlands, MT, ND, MN, NH
