Jeffrey C Cole

Jeffrey Cole is Team Lead of the Groundwater and Ecology Field Innovation Unit.

Jeffrey's current work centers on characterizing groundwater - surface water interactions using paired air and stream temperature monitoring.

Previous projects characterized the spatial distribution and habitat needs of aquatic organisms with emphasis on freshwater mussels and their host fish. He has also developed and applied two-dimensional hydrodynamic flow models and temperature models to better understand what drives where freshwater mussels thrive.
