Professor of Geology and Geophysics



(608)262-5513; (608)262-8960

Energy Expertise: 

​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.
