Other Information: 

Dr. Judson W. Harvey investigates hydrologic transport processes and how they affect aquatic ecosystem processes in rivers and wetlands. The research is conducted in varied environments, from steep forested watersheds in Colorado and California to alluvial rivers in Arizona and Louisiana to headwater streams and wetlands of Midwestern agricultural areas, urban areas of the Atlantic coastal plain, and the vast Everglades floodplain in south Florida. Jud has served on editorial boards for Water Resources Research and Wetlands, and on committees of the American Geophysical Union, the National Research Council, and the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography. He has taught “Groundwater-Surface Water Relationships: Chemical and Hydroecological Interactions” at USGS’ National Training Center in Denver for nearly twenty years, and he is co-author of the immensely popular USGS circular “Groundwater and Surface Water: A Single Resource” with 44,000 copies in print. In 2010 Jud was elected as a Fellow of the Geological Society of America.
