About David Radcliffe

Dr. Radcliffe teaches Soil Physics (CRSS 4600) and Advanced Soil Physics (CRSS 8600). He also co-teaches Introduction to Water Resources (CRSS/WASR 1020) and Watershed-Scale Modeling (CRSS/GEOL 8710).

His research involves water movement and nutrient, sediment, and bacteria transport in agricultural and urban systems and at the field and watershed scale. It combines field measurements and modeling studies. Recent work has shown that septic systems increase stream nitrogen and bacteria concentrations in dense suburban environments near Atlanta.

Current work is focused on determining the sources of nutrients and bacteria in streams on the UGA campus and in Athens. This is part of the Watershed UGA effort.
