Graham Fogg is Professor of Hydrogeology in the Department of Land, Air and Water Resources.
His research interests include groundwater contaminant transport; groundwater basin characterization and management; geologic/geostatistical characterization of subsurface heterogeneity for improved pollutant transport modeling; numerical modeling of groundwater flow and contaminant transport; role of molecular diffusion in contaminant transport and remediation; long-term sustainability of regional groundwater quality; vulnerability of aquifers to non-point-source groundwater contaminants.
His work with the Watershed Center has included an important study documenting groundwater conditions in the Lower Cosumnes River, and showing the impact of those conditions on various plans to increase fall flows for salmon.
