After his undergraduate work, Doss conducted hydrogeological
research for the National Park Service, which is what led him on to
further graduate studies and his Ph.D. research. Paul also worked as
a hydrogeologist with the U.S. Geological Survey for seven years
examining wetland hydrogeology and water quality and water-supply
issues in the industrialized Midwestern United States.
---Who knows why, but if you would like some additional information you can check:
Paul teaches introductory and advanced-level courses on Environmental Geology, Physical Geology, Wetland Science, and Hydrogeology.
Coursework in Environmental Geology and Hydrogeology involve investigations of current developments in the field, both locally and nationally. Multi- and interdisciplinary perspectives are stressed and students stay abreast of timely issues as reported in the popular and scientific literature. Communication skills are also stressed in these courses.
Doss' Courses with webpages
Doss' research centers around interpretation of physical and geochemical processes within the hydrologic cycle. Specifically, his research examines in detail the transient nature of ground-water flow in and around wetlands and other surface water bodies, and the mechanisms that produce that transience. More recent investigations include aspects of ground-water flow and chemistry in fractured bedrock.
