Research and Teaching Interests:
Dr. Todhunter’s primary area of research interest is climatology (microclimatology, urban climatology, agricultural climatology, hydroclimatology, and climate change/variability). He has a secondary interest in hydrology (northern prairie wetlands, flood hazards, and human impacts upon the hydrological cycle), and is interested in how interannual climatic variability affects the abundance and size of prairie wetlands.
Over the past several years, Dr. Todhunter has begun to develop an interest in the area of natural hazards, with a focus upon hazards common to the northern Great Plains region. He uses an integrative approach and a variety of methodological tools to examine environmental systems and issues of regional interest in the northern Great Plains. In addition, he has a long-standing interest in the physical environment of urban systems, and more recently, he acquired an interest in Scandinavia (especially Norway and Iceland).
Dr. Todhunter’s teaching interests are fairly broad, as he has taught the following undergraduate courses: Introduction to Global Climate, Global Physical Environment, Climatology, Natural Hazards, Conservation of Resources, Human Impact on the Environment, and Hydrology. He has also taught graduate classes in Geographic Research and Writing, and Advanced Physical Geography.
