Dr. Petticrew's research interests involve fluxes to and in aquatic systems, at a variety of scales. Fluxes of sediment, nutrient and contaminants have been investigated in recent research including 1) the influence of forest harvesting on sediment yields to British Columbian lakes, 2) the transport and storage of fine sediments in highly productive fish bearing streams, 3) the role of organic matter in the morphology and settling characteristics of freshwater flocs and 4) restoration of a northern residential eutrophic lake.
