Dr. Matthew Covington

Dr. Matthew Covington is Associate Professor of Geology in the Department of Geosciences, University of Arkansas. Dr. Covington’s primary area of research interest lies along the intersection of hydrogeology and geomorphology, with a particular focus on karst aquifers and landforms. Much of Dr. Covington’s recent work studies CO2 dynamics within karst systems and the impact that they have on the development and evolution of karst. Dr. Covington’s work typically combines analysis of field data with construction of simple, physically based mathematical models that enhance understanding of the processes occurring within karst.
