Philip T. Harte, P.G.

Philip Harte is a Research Hydrologist in the New England Water Science Center. 

Philip's research incorporates the development of novel tools and methods to address important societal questions related to fate and transport of contaminants in complex groundwater systems to help safeguard our natural resources. He focuses on the study of groundwater flow and contaminant transport in natural and remediated settings with complex, heterogeneous formations. Experience includes over 30 years of work on the national and international arena studying the occurrence, distribution, and fate of natural and anthropogenic contamination problems. Research includes the development of new tools and methods that provide new insight into contaminant occurrence. An important component of Philip's work is the discovery of new findings that results from the unique linkage between the study of subsurface physical flow processes and water chemistry. This work requires multidiscipline application and comprehensive understanding of groundwater hydraulics, geophysics, and geochemistry.
