The Yin and Yang of N in Streams

Exploring the Nitrogen Cycle With Young Minds

We’re lucky to have Tyler (a high school intern) join our lab for a week. We put him straight to work processing ammonium samples, making and deploying nutrient diffusing substrate, and helping out in the field.  We enjoyed having him around and showing him how our lab works.  I am now headed west to do some more sampling.
