“The rhythm of water – how seasonal cycles affect water quality, sustainability, and human health,” Mason Stahl, James M. Kenney Assistant Professor of Environmental Engineering, Union College, Department of Geosciences.
Sponsored by the Class of 1960 Scholars Program in Environmental Studies and the Center for Environmental Studies (CES).
Mason Stahl is an Assistant Professor in the Environmental Science, Policy and Engineering Program and the Geosciences Department at Union College. His research spans the fields of hydrogeology, geochemistry, and water resources and he studies how perturbations to the environment influence the flows of water, the cycling of elements, and the quality of our water resources. Much of his research falls into two key areas: (1) characterizing soil moisture and groundwater recharge processes; (2) elemental cycling in groundwater and surface water systems with a strong focus on the cycling of arsenic. A primary goal of his research is to help answer questions about how groundwater and surface water quality will respond to natural and anthropogenic changes to the environment and what this means for the health of people and the environment.
