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 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.
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!
For 25 years the University Consortium has lead the way in applied groundwater research. The University Consortium for Field Focused Groundwater Contamination Research is an informal association of industry sponsors and 12 professors from four American and four Canadian universities.
