  Ralph Davis is currently a Professor of Geology.  He teaches several courses at the graduate level including Hydrogeologic Modeling, Environmental Site Assessment, and Hydrogeologic Field Methods.  His research interests are groundwater sustainability/groundwater declines, contaminant hydrogeology, and water-resources management, including estimation of artificial and natural recharge to aquifers, contaminant transport in all types of geologic media, wetlands/riparian area delineation and assessment, and source water assessment.  He is particularly interested in bacterial fate and transport in the very dynamic karst aquifers of northwestern Arkansas, but also has active programs related to water quality and water resources development and management with the Santee Sioux Nation, with reservation lands in northern Nebraska.
