Mike Gooseff is a co-principal investigator, he holds three degrees in Civil Engineering and has taught at five Universities. He currently teaches at the University of Colorado Boulder. He conducts research regarding streams and the Arctic, in particular, how streams exchange water with the stream beds- nutrients and other biogeochemicals being focus points. Additionally, Mike also conducts research in Antarctica and enjoys comparing and contrasting the two poles.


Most recently, he studies permafrost degradation features and how the Arctic ecosystem is responding. Mike is interested in learning more about the societal dependence on river systems. “One of the things I’m impressed with is how many communities we’ve involved and how many stakeholders we have to work with across a broad swath of the Arctic.” Mike’s expertise and knowledge supplement many facets of the project.
