Collaborative CZO Research: The Role of Metals in Nitrogen Cycling of Soils and Streams

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

A collaboration with researchers at Princeton University will leverage the exceptional sensor and geochemistry data from our Critical Zone Observatory project developed by Stroud Water Research Center scientists to explore the importance of a number of trace metals in the nitrogen fixation and denitrification transformations of nitrogen within our flood plain soils and sediments.

Funded by: National Science Foundation EAR 1024545

Principal Investigators: Anthony K. Aufdenkampe (Stroud Water Research Center), Anne Kraepiel, and Francois Morel (Princeton University)

Project Years: 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014
