Jean Bahr studies the interactions between physical and chemical processes that control
mass transport in groundwater. She and her students employ a combination of field studies, core and outcrop studies, and numerical modeling
to test hypotheses about how groundwater systems
operate. Bahr has applied these techniques to questions related to
groundwater/surface water interactions, naturally occurring and
anthropogenic contaminants in shallow and deeper aquifers, and
groundwater as a resource for both humans and ecosystems.
