Dr. Regis’s research interests are mostly regarding the geomorphology of the U.P., particularly the glacial history and glacial landforms. Additionally, he studies groundwater hydrology in glaciated crystalline bedrock terrain, and Lake Superior shoreline processes. He uses remote sensing techniques, including LiDAR and Multispectral Scanner (MSS) data from various satellite and aircraft instruments to map landforms and quantify processes. His current research involves the use of remote sensing techniques to map the distribution and movement of legacy mining tailings (stamp sand) dumped along the shore of Lake Superior. In another recent project, he co-authored a paper on the Paleogeography and depositional environment of a local Cambrian-age sandstone that contained an unusual assemblage of fossils.
