Jack Cosby from the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology in Bangor has >35 y research experience in the hydrology and biogeochemistry of soils and natural waters. His research focuses on development of process-based ecosystem models for catchment soils, low-order streams and small lakes, and coastal and estuarine systems. He uses these models both as tools for increasing scientific understanding of biogeochemical processes, and, through their application at landscape and regional scales, as tools for knowledge transfer and environmental decision-making. He has extensive laboratory experience in analytical chemical and instrumental techniques applied to the analysis of natural waters and has designed and implemented field experiments ranging from plot-scale, to hill-slope, to whole-catchment manipulations.
