The University of New Hampshire is situated at the confluence of the Oyster River and the Great Bay, one of the most important estuaries in the Gulf of Maine. This natural setting provides an excellent backdrop to current hydrologic research in the areas of water quality, fluvial hydrology, sediment transport, aquifer structure, and groundwater/contaminant transport.
