Professional Interests

Mr. Russell's research interests are centered on hydrogeologic studies that combine hydrologic and geochemical parameters to solve hydrologic problems, on both a local and regional scale. Other areas of focus are the development of improved methods for the field-based determination of hydrologic parameters, the development of improved methods for monitoring and remediation techniques.
