Charles Maule

     Charles Maule  B.Sc., M.Sc., Ph.D.

    Professor Emeritus, Civil and Geological Engineering

    Biography

    • Dr. Maule's expertise is in soil hydrology and land management. His research topics have included infiltration and snowmelt runoff of agricultural and forested lands, water conservation in dryland farming, transport of water and agricultural chemicals through to soil zone to the groundwater, agro-meteorology, and the effect of animal manures on soil and water quality. His research has been carried out in collaboration with academics and scientists from Soil Science, Geography, Agriculture and Agric-food Canada, the National Water Quality Institute, and Japanese Agricultural Research Institutes (Hokkaido). Results of this research have led to improved understanding of the effects of tillage on soil water balance and soil heat transport and design of earthen manure storage structures. 

      His professional associations include APEGS, SIA, CBE, and ASBE.
