New study funded to create nitrogen budgets and models

Amy Marcarelli, Associate Professor in Biological Sciences at Michigan Technological University, has received an NSF CAREER award to study nitrogen conversion balance in rivers. She will use a combination of old and new techniques to examine the balance between nitrogen fixation and denitrification influences nitrogen loads in streams and rivers. She will be studying rivers at local and global scales, using the National Ecological Observatory Network and a mobile analytical lab. The mobile lab is central to the research and is also an important to the educational component of the project. It will be used for school visits so that local (K-12) students can see research in action.
