Sea-level rise causing permafrost to thaw is threatening ecosystems, CityNews Everywhere
Dr. Julia Guimond is a groundwater hydrologist studying how hydrologic systems along Earth's coastlines are impacted by climate change including the implications for the health and services of coastal ecosystems. Specifically, she seeks to better understand the influence of sea-level rise, extreme weather events, and permafrost thaw on coastal groundwater dynamics and salinity distributions. Her research incorporates field campaigns to coastal temperate and polar environments, and utilizes numerical models to expand process-based understanding in space and time. Julia's interdisciplinary research interests require collaboration and knowledge transfer between ecologists, biogeochemists, oceanographers, and climatologists.
