Natural and anthropogenic factors affecting the chemical quality, flows, and distribution of freshwater on and beneath the Earth’s surface.

James Saiers is a hydrologist. His recent research addresses drinking-water impacts of fossil-fuel development, natural carbon capture and carbon cycling within watersheds, and migration of contaminants through groundwater aquifers. This research relies on experimentation and mathematical modeling and is conducted in collaboration with ecologists, geochemists, engineers, and epidemiologists. His overarching goal is to generate new observations and to develop predictive approaches that can be used to inform water-resource management approaches intended to safeguard freshwater, ecosystems, and public health.
