Sean Carey Professor

School of Geography & Earth Sciences, McMaster University

Dr. Carey directs the Watershed Hydrology Group and McMaster University and his research interests include hydrological, biogeochemical and land surface processes in natural and human impacted environments. 

The group Dr. Carey leads uses field, laboratory and modelling approaches to understand how hydrological processes interact and influence ecosystem, biogeochemical and catchment processes across scales. Dr. Carey has a particular interest in cold environments and has been working in Yukon Territory for over 20 years. In addition, the influence of landscape disturbances on catchment processes has been an area of focus as the group seeks to help both industry and regulators understand and mitigate large scale disturbance in northern regions.
