The WATER group, led by Professor Carl Mitchell at the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus (UTSC), studies the ways in which hydrology influences biogeochemical processes and contaminant fate and transport.  The group is particularly interested in mercury cycling, urban ecosystems, watershed and hilllslope hydrology, stable isotope applications in hydrology, wetland ecotoxicology, passive sampling, and fluvial transport of contaminants.  Our research employs state-of-the-art physical and chemical techniques, both in the field and in the laboratory.  The lab is home to the CFI and MRI-funded “Integrated Watershed Hydrology and Biogeochemistry Research Facility for the Study of Contaminant Transport and Transformation”.
