Congratulations Martina on an excellent presentation and successful defense of your thesis!!
Another great paper on stormwater wet ponds by Piehler Lab alum Adam Gold. He found that sediment nitrate uptake was higher during the summer, however the nitrate uptake was driven by retention rather than denitrification. Information from this paper will advance our understanding of the function and management of this common piece of stormwater infrastructure. Congratulations again Adam. Download the paper here.
Last week I had the opportunity to testify before a congressional sub-committee about several of our projects focused on resilience. It would have been more fun to be in DC, but it was still a great time!
Exciting new project harnessing the expertise across Carolina in a convergent approach to tackie resilience!
