Dr. Graeme Spiers is the Chair of Environmental Monitoring at
Laurentian University. Graeme is cross appointed in the Departments of
Chemistry - Biochemistry, Earth Sciences and Biology, and Director of the
Centre for Environmental Monitoring with MIRARCO.
He has 25 years of research and facilities management experience in
academic, government and commercial laboratory environments. His research
has focused on effects of acidification and extreme metal insult on
pedologic processes, particularly as these relate to seasonal metal fluxes
to water bodies.
Over 100 publications (30 journal papers) have contributed to the
understanding of metal translocation in soil-plant systems, and have
included pioneering work in development of slurry analytical methodologies
for mineral materials.
