Much of Scott's research focuses on the intersection of hydrology, climatology and geomorphology. He studies the role of climate processes and change on these systems, with particular emphasis on cold regions. Current research is carried out in Nunavut and the NWT, along with several locations in Alaska and Norway. He is especially interested in the development of novel environmental instrumentation for sediment delivery studies. He is also uses lake sediments to establish comprehensive paleoenvironmental records in an effort to understand how climate changes have impacted physical and biological systems. This work has generated the first indications of how the arctic hydroclimatic environment has varied during the past 3000+ years, providing fundamental information for assessing natural climate variability. Other field research has been or is currently being conducted in the Pacific Northwest and northern Ontario. Scott collaborates with multi-disciplinary teams through his EVEX (Environmental Variability and Extremes Laboratory).
