Professor Peter Cook
One of Australia's foremost groundwater scientists, Professor Cook has more than 20 years’ experience in groundwater research, spanning the fields of groundwater hydrology, ecohydrology, isotope hydrology, unsaturated zone flow process, and surface water – groundwater interaction.
He has co-written books on environmental tracers and ecohydrology and was the National Ground Water Association’s Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecturer in Ground Water Science in 2009; the first time this honour was awarded to a scientist from outside North America.
