Craig Ulrich is a Research Geophysicist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). He received his BS in Geology from Northwest Missouri State University and his MSc in Environmental Geology (emphasis in Geophysics) from Rutgers the State University of New Jersey. He worked in the private sector as Geologist and Geophysicist for environmental and geophysics firms before joining the lab in 2011.
Craig’s current research interests include the fields of environmental geophysics, hydrology, and contamination. Currently, my research includes:
- Understanding and monitoring groundwater recharge processes; and developing methods and workflows for basin, drywell, and bioswale recharge. (Visit our Water Recharge website)
- Understanding the link between surface and subsurface processes related to permafrost degradation in arctic settings.
- Quantifying surface water-groundwater exchanges in a gravel river setting to better understand clogging phenomena.
- Evaluating fault zone permeability changes over time due to rock stress field perturbations.
