Research Areas

Dr. Price's research interests include the general areas of hydrogeology, ecohydrology and low-temperature aqueous geochemistry in carbonate terrains. More specifically, her research involves using chemical tracers, including the isotopes of oxygen, hydrogen, and major ions to identify water sources, groundwater flow paths and groundwater-surface water interactions. In addition, she has investigated water-rock interactions associated with seawater intrusion into coastal carbonate aquifers. Her research has been conducted extensively in south Florida including the Everglades as well as in the Yucatan of Mexico and Mallorca, Spain.

Laboratory facilities include an Ion Chromatograph, Los Gatos liquid isotope analyzer, TOC analyzer, and an automated titrator. To see my website click here.
