Dr. Kristina Keating’s research focuses on using near surface geophysics to investigate the top 100 m’s of Earth’s surface. In particular, she is interested in using near-surface geophysics for hydrogeologic, biogeochemical, and cryosphere investigations. Dr. Keating uses standard geophysical methods including seismic refraction and electrical resistivity, but much of her research is focused on a novel geophysical method, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). Past and on-going studies in her research group includes field investigations to understand the depth and distribution of permafrost in Svalbard, laboratory studies to improve geophysical estimations of hydraulic conductivity, and computer modeling to improve the interpretation and analysis of geophysical data.
Harmful Algal Blooms
Webinar Format: Zoom

Climate change will have a major impact on both aquatic ecosystems. Among these impacts is the potential for more harmful algal blooms (HABs). HABs occur when algae (plant-like organisms) grow out of control and produce toxins that are harmful to people, fish, birds, and other organisms in the local environment. Join members of the NJ Department of Environmental Protection, Statewide HAB Expert Team, and Watershed Institute as they discuss the relationship between HABs in freshwater and climate change, as well as how municipalities and residents can work to address and manage these damaging events.
