Bob Danczak publishes Rifle research

A third-year graduate student in the group, Bob Danczak, just published some of his research from the Rifle site in western Colorado. He had studied linkages between river discharge in the adjacent Colorado River, and biogeochemical processes in the floodplain subsurface. He discovered that increasing river stage (linked to seasonal snowmelt patterns) caused increases in the water table height, driving a series of microbiological and geochemical changes in the aquifer. His research was published in Frontiers in Earth Science here


Casey Saup receives an AIPG scholarship

Casey Saup, a graduate student in the group, was recently presented with a scholarship from the American Institute of Professional Geologists. Casey works on both metal mobility in sediments, and the deep biosphere in black shales. Congratulations Casey!
