Senior Researcher, G360
Dr. Peeter Pehme P.Geo. is an adjunct professor and senior researcher in the School of Engineering and the president of Waterloo Geophysics Inc. as well as a Research Associate at the University of Guelph. Peeter earned his Ph.D. in Hydrogeology/Hydrogeophysics, a M.Sc. in Hydrogeology/Geophysics and B.Sc. in Earth Science from the University of Waterloo.
Peeter was the founding president of Hyd-Eng Geophysics Inc. (a geophysical consulting firm with offices in Mississauga and Halifax) for fifteen years before merging with Dillon Consulting Limited where he served as the senior geophysicist and an associate.
His 30 plus year career in geophysics has provided him with extensive experience in the application of a wide variety of surface and borehole geophysical techniques to hydrogeological and geotechnical investigations included sites throughout Canada, the United States, Caribbean, Europe, South America, Asia, and the high Arctic.
Peeter has investigated the application of highly sensitive temperature logging to identify fractures and water movement in rock boreholes since the early 1990s. He provides geophysical expertise to the Cherry/Parker research program at the University of Guelph developing and combining innovative borehole technologies with hydrophysical techniques investigating DNAPL migration through fractured rock.
