Water Quality Specialist - Fluvial Geochemistry

CURRENT S&T / RESEARCH - Monitoring and surveillance of water quality in Québec

  • Analysis of contaminant transport and sedimentary dynamics of the St. Lawrence and its tributaries
  • Monitoring and surveillance of pesticides in rivers in agricultural areas
  • Monitoring and surveillance of emerging contaminants (polybrominated diphenyl ether, pharmaceuticals and personal care products, perfluoroalkoxy) in the St. Lawrence
  • Analysis of the river's contribution to the chemical contamination of the St. Lawrence estuary
  • Asssessment of municipal effluent contributions to the contamination of the aquatic environment
