Professor Chris Soulsby
Professor of Hydrology, University of Aberdeen
Professor Soulsby’s research aims at understanding the movement of water and its interactions with the landscape. His work focuses on using isotopic and other environmental tracers to understand the movement of water through catchments of various sizes and in different geographical settings. His work has made fundamental scientific contributions by integrating intensive field data with ‘state of the art’ models.
Over the past 25 years, Professor Soulsby has led the development of the University of Aberdeen as an international centre of excellence in catchment hydrology. He was Deputy Head of the School of Geosciences 2005–10, then Head of School 2010–14. He is also a founding member and the Director of the Northern Rivers Institute.
