Eric Klein | Researcher Fellow
University of Alaska Anchorage | Anchorage, AK

Eric is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geological Science at the University of Alaska Anchorage. His hydroclimate research explores how water moves through the Earth and leaves different signals (some physical, others biological or chemical) that allow us to understand its distribution and impacts across multiple time periods, landscapes, and phase changes. He uses field instrumentation and stable water isotope ratios to understand the movement and relationship between modern hydroclimate variables, such as precipitation, glacier melt, and stream discharge. Much of Eric’s current research is in high northern latitude and Arctic environments.
