Dr. Stumpf is a Quaternary geologist who undertakes basic and applied research to examine and characterize sediments and landforms left behind by glaciers that are exposed at the land surface and in the subsurface. Taking an interdisciplinary and multi-faceted approach, Dr. Stumpf and his research group seek to understand how glaciers and their associated meltwaters have impacted Earth's surface. Dr. Stumpf's research program is strongly field-oriented, and a variety of high-resolution geological, geophysical, hydrogeological and geochemical methods are used to study these sediments and landforms. In some places the coarse-grained sediment (sand and gravel) may contain important sources of water (especially in buried valleys) and construction aggregate that provide economic and environmental benefits to society. In steep terrain, collapse and failure of the sediment may pose a significant hazard to property and public infrastructure. The sediments may also hold evidence of past climates that can be used to model future conditions. Dr. Stumpf uses geospatial and geomodelling software to visualize, analyze, and interpret the information at various scales and dimensions. Dr. Stumpf is a well sought-after geoscientist who has been involved in projects studying glaciers and their deposits throughout Illinois and other areas of the United States, across Canada, and in Europe and South America.
