Brent Wolfe’s research targets critical water-related issues in large northern freshwater ecosystems. Approaches combine contemporary hydroecological studies, spearheaded by the use of water isotope tracers, with long-term records of hydroecological changes derived from analyses of lake sediment cores. The temporal insight gained from these techniques is needed to inform ecosystem stewardship. Wolfe’s research program provides northern research opportunities for students in physical geography, biology and earth science programs who receive an enhanced level of multidisciplinary training in the field of northern hydroecology.
