Aquatic Carbon Cycling
Linkages: terrestrial-aquatic, organic-inorganic
My main research interest is in aquatic carbon cycling in small headwater catchments of North America. My field sites include small streams in: interior Alaska, Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park, the lake-rich region of northern Wisconsin, the Sleepers River watershed in Vermont, the Panola Mountain watershed in Georgia, and the Luquillo watershed in Puerto Rico. I am interested in how streams contribute to the global carbon cycle and how they interact with their surrounding landcape features including forests, wetlands, lakes, and groundwater.
