About Professor Scott G Johnston

Professor Scott Johnston BAppSc(NE), PhD(SCU)
Professor Scott Johnston's research interests are soil and water quality interactions and the coupling of hydrology and biogeochemistry in coastal floodplains. Professor Johnston's research has had a particular focus on interpreting and quantifying landscape-scale processes in acid sulfate soil environments, in order to assess and refine applied remediation and management techniques.
He was awarded an APDI in 2008 and has worked closely with industry, state and local governments developing guidelines for managing broad-acre acid sulfate soil drainage. Recent research efforts aim to improve and transform our understanding of the hydro-geochemical consequences of rising sea-levels and climate change for iron, sulfur and arsenic cycling on coastal floodplains.
