The Environmental Geochemistry Group at the University of Saskatchewan is led by Dr. Matthew Lindsay, who is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geological Sciences and the NSERC/Syncrude Industrial Research Chair in Mine Closure Geochemistry. Our research is focused on understanding biogeochemical controls on water quality within geohydrologic systems. More specifically, we study how interactions among chemical, biological and physical process influence the occurrence and mobility of dissolved constituents in groundwater and surface waters. Much of our research is aimed at constraining relationships between minerals, metal(loid)s, and the biogeochemical cycling of carbon, sulfur and iron. Our overall research is to develop new strategies for reducing impacts of mining and other anthropogenic activities on water resources.
