Florent Barbecot is a professor at GEOTOP, Quebec University in Montréal, and chairs the graduate studies in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. Dr. Barbecot holds a PhD in hydrogeology from Paris XI University. His research includes both fundamental research and applied science in the field of water resources geochemistry. His major focus is on developing field methodologies for (1) quantifying the present impacts of various land uses on groundwater recharge, (2) predicting the response of groundwater resources to land use and climate change in small river basins, and (3) assessing the impact of changes in quality and quantity of groundwater recharge on surface ecosystems.
