RMC en route to Toolik Field Station in the Alaskan Arctic, to study the chemistry of soil carbon released to surface waters during snow melt
As published in the journal Water Research, joint work led by Jennifer Gentry-Shields in the Stewart lab investigates the role of DOM as an inhibitor of qPCR in natural waters. This collaborative effort of recent graduates Jennifer Gentry-Shields (PhD 2012) … Continued
High school teacher Bruce Taterka will join our 2013 Arctic Expedition thanks to the NSF funded PolarTREC program. PolarTREC (Teachers and Researchers Exploring and Collaborating) is a program in which K-12 teachers participate in hands-on field research in the polar … Continued
Listen to or read about our work on permafrost carbon degradation was covered by Radio Ecoshock and by the CBC Radio Program Quirks & Quarks, as well as Science NOW and Climate Wire.
Recent climate change has increased arctic soil temperatures and thawed large areas of permafrost, allowing microbes to convert previously frozen carbon into the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2). Furthermore, soil destabilization from melting ice has caused “thermokarst failures,” soil slumping over … Continued
We’re excited to share that Dr. Cory has received the Dreyfus award to advance environmental chemistry research! This award will enable Dr. Cory to advance her research in environmental chemistry. Read the full story on the Gillings School of … Continued
