Research & Publications
Saiers studies freshwater quality and supply. He runs experiments, collects observations, and develops models to illuminate how human activities affect the chemical composition of drinking-water resources and alter freshwater flows within aquifers, wetlands, and river basins. His recent research projects address water-quality impacts of fossil-fuel development, carbon and nutrient transport through watersheds, radionuclide migration in groundwater, and climate-change effects on water resources in Africa.
