Karrow’s specialty is Quaternary geology, in which he studies the glacial sedimentary record and its fossils to piece together our most recent geologic history, from the Pleistocene epoch to the present. He has also worked on the Great Lakes and sea level history.

Karrow was honoured for mapping the surface geology of much of Grand River Watershed. He also collaborated to create a 3D geology map of the Waterloo moraine. These maps have been critical for our understanding and quantitative modeling of water flow and infiltration through the Grand River watershed.

Professor Karrow received his award at the 2016 GRCA Watershed Awards night on October 20th.
