Welcome to the Helton Lab at the University of Connecticut's Department of Natural Resources and the Environment & the Center for Environmental Sciences and Engineering.
We are interested in how water and elemental (primarily carbon and nutrient) cycles are linked across landscapes and how human activities and global climate change alter these cycles and their interactions. Our research focuses on a range of freshwater ecosystems - streams and rivers, floodplains, and wetlands using a variety of field and simulation modeling approaches.
Please explore the research and publications pages for more information.
