Jaye E. Cable is chair of the Curriculum in Environment and Ecology and a professor of Marine Sciences in the College of Arts and Sciences. Her research focuses on groundwater discharge to the ocean, groundwater-surface water interactions, wetland hydrology and hydrodynamics, and applications of geochemical tracers to study marine and environmental processes. In 2013 she was named a WOWS (Working on Women in Science) Scholar, an honor that is designed to foster the recruitment and advancement of women in the sciences and medicine. She is a 2016 Academic Leadership Program fellow of the Institute for the Arts and Humanities.

“Because radon concentrations in groundwater greatly exceed those of surface waters, it can be used to quantify groundwater inputs if all other radon sources and sinks are budgeted,” Kolker writes in an article co-authored by research scientists Jaye Cable, Karen Johannesson, Mead Allison and Lorna Inniss and just published in the Journal of Hydrology...

ABSTRACT: Coastal hydrogeologists and oceanographers now recognize the potentially significant contribution that submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) could make to the coastal ocean. SGD may be both volumetrically and chemically important to coastal water ...
ABSTRACT: Direct groundwater inputs are receiving increasing attention as a potential source of nutrients and otherdissolved constituents to the coastal ocean. Seepage into St. George Sound, Florida was measured extensively from 1992 to 1994 using seepage meters. ...
Submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) may provide important chemical constituents to the ocean, but the dispersed nature of this process makes locating and quantifying its input extremely difficult. Since groundwater contains 3–4 orders of magnitude greater radon ...
ABSTRACT: Groundwater discharge is a neglected source of freshwater and dissolved constituents to the ocean. It can occur via diffuse seepage and point source spring discharge. Two naturally occurring trace gases, 222Rn and CH41 are present in ...
Methane concentrations in groundwater (wells, sinkholes, and springs) averaged 61±9 μM, while concentrations in nearshore and continental shelf waters within the study area averaged 62±7 nM and 27±5x nM, respectively. We tested the hypothesis that the three ...
