Investigating pollutants in northern Minnesota

Posted on August 13th, 2011 by

This summer, student researchers have been collecting water and soil samples from a bog in northern Minnesota to investigate how mercury, a toxic pollutant, and other metals are transported through ecosystems.  This work is part of an ongoing study led by Prof. Jeremiason at the Marcell Experimental Forest near Grand Rapids, MN.  Pictured are Emily Seelen (’13, Environmental Studies and Biology double-major) and Nick Alverson (’12, Environmental Studies and Geology double-major), whose summer research positions were funded by grants from the National Science Foundation.
