William G Crumpton

Chairman for Environmental Programs

My current research focuses on wetland processes and functions in agricultural landscapes, including the dynamics of energy flow and nutrient transformation in wetlands, the fate and effects of agricultural contaminants in wetlands, and the role of restored and constructed wetlands in water quality remediation. Our work combines experimental studies in wetland mesocosms, field studies in natural and restored wetlands, and dynamic simulation modeling in an effort to understand critical processes and predict wetland performance.
