Li Reactive Water Group uses physical and biogeochemical principles to understand how water moves, who it interacts with, and what controls its composition in natural environments. In doing so, we aim to understand the response of water flow and chemistry to perturbations. Ultimately we aim to forecast water quantity and quality, and to facilitate management, stewardship, and risk assessment. @LiReactiveWater
