The G360 Institute for Groundwater Research is a focal point for groundwater research collaborations between Academics, Governments, and Industries around the world
G360 is engaged in a growing range of exciting groundwater research themes centred around understanding critical groundwater quality and quantity issues in Canada and Globally. Our research is focused on understanding site-scale mechanisms governing groundwater flow and contaminant transport processes through analysis and modelling high resolution in situ field data.
G360 is a field-focused research institute and as such is always pushing the limits of existing methods and technologies for investigating the subsurface as well as developing new one along the way. Our team is always looking for new ways to gain insights from well established tools and methods and striving to make more advanced methods easier and more cost effective to deploy.
G360 researchers are very active in publications and have to date published more than 130 papers in refereed journals.
G360 newsletters are published annually. Past issues are available for you to explore.
In keeping with our G360 Institute mission to advance groundwater science through highly collaborative and multi-disciplinary, field-based research; our projects demonstrate the variety of technologies used for data collection and applied in various hydrogeologic environments around the globe.
G360 operates three core facilities including an Analytical Chemistry Laboratory and a Physical Properties Laboratory. The Institute has also constructed and operates the Bedrock Aquifer Field Facility (BAFF) for controlled field experiments, collaborations, and outreach learning opportunities.
The challenges facing water protection, supply and remediation are complex and global in nature. When Universities, Governments, and Industry work together on the World’s leading groundwater challenges, it’s amazing what can be accomplished!
G360 and our collaborators are regularly looking for new talent who share in our passion for groundwater investigation. If you are interested in earning a Masters or PhD degree related to groundwater research, our network of principal investigators offer a wide range of evolving opportunities.
In association with UN World Water Day on March 22, we bring you positive news on our G³⁶⁰ Institute 2019 projects, involving local and international activities focused on groundwater resource protection and remediation. Our multi-disciplinary field-focused efforts in collaboration with site…
Dr. Beth Parker was recently featured in Ground Water Canada Magazine after being interviewed on her vision for the on-campus Bedrock Aquifer Field Facility (BAFF). Funding was approved earlier this year, and the new, research-focused, educational facility will highlight groundwater and…
The College of Engineering and Physical Sciences (CEPS) at the University of Guelph recently featured G³⁶⁰ groundwater remediation research headed by Dr. Beth Parker, including team members Dr. Kari Dunfield and Dr. Philip Wanner. The article highlights how new multi-disciplinary…
