Bring me your tap water!

Can you spare 2 mL of tap water? Citizen Science + Isotopes + SPATIAL family = a project I want to help out with.  The isotopes of water vary systematically across landscapes due to evaporation and precipitation processes. Given this, we can pretty easily distinguish water between Miami and Omaha …

Five Undergrad Rockstars

Today I am very excited – five of my awesome undergraduate students will be presenting their theses work. I couldn’t be prouder of what they have accomplished. Delaney Tight built a biogeochemical reaction model of nitrogen cycling in  aquifers of tidal freshwater zones. Here, water is completely fresh but diurnal …

Cats who travel for science

Radiocarbon, SUVA, Flowpaths, & Family

Our paper, Riverine export of aged carbon driven by flow path depth and residence time connecting aged dissolved organic matter export with deeper flow paths, is now available online! (Barnes et al. 2018) Inland waters represent an important component of the global carbon cycle, releasing between 2-4 Gt of carbon dioxide into …
