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
