Meet Our 2021 Summer Interns

800 450 Stroud Water Research Center

Our summer internship program, now in its 49th year, has ushered through hundreds of interns seeking meaningful learning experiences.

Delaware River Watershed Initiative Citizen Science Phase II

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This project will engage watershed residents to be active participants in efforts to document conditions across the focus areas of the Delaware River Watershed Initiative. Work includes efforts to support…

Using Microbial Source Tracking to Identify Potential Bacterial Sources in White Clay Creek to Target Best Management Practices and Implementation Strategies

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Scientists monitored fecal indicator bacteria in White Clay Creek during summer and identified potential bacterial contamination by molecular microbial source tracking. Funded by: 2018-2020: White Clay Watershed Association and White…

Source Tracking and Spatial/Temporal Dynamics of Bacterial Contaminants in Red Clay Creek

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Scientists monitored fecal indicator bacteria on a monthly basis at the east and west branches of the Red Clay Creek watershed. Funded by: Starrett Foundation Principal Investigators 2019–2020: Jinjun Kan,…

Restoration Project Impact Assessment in Support of Delaware River Watershed Initiative

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This project quantifies the positive impact of one or several restoration projects associated with the Delaware River Watershed Initiative, namely those funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s Delaware…

Monitoring Fish Populations and Stream Habitat Quality for the National Park Service

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This project monitors biological conditions, water quality, habitat integrity, and fish at 37 sites in 10 national parks in the National Capital Region Network around Washington, D.C. The findings of…

Molecular Ecology of Archaea in Aquatic and Terrestrial Environments

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Less is known about Archaea than the other two domains of life on Earth (Bacteria and Eukarya), particularly the role they play in ecosystem functions and nutrient cycling (e.g., ammonia…

Mitigating Agricultural Pollution of Fresh Water and Combating Climate Change by Restoring Soil Health Through Conservation and Organic Agricultural Practices

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Plowing, disking, synthetic fertilizers, and pesticides have damaged the health of agricultural soils, resulting in reduced rainfall infiltration and storage, increased stormwater and pollutant runoff, degraded streams, and contaminated groundwater.…

Microbial Population Dynamics of Periphyton Biofilms in White Clay Creek

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Using glass microscope slides as tiny gardens to grow microbial biofilms, this project explored differences in microorganisms between three reaches of White Clay Creek with different streamside vegetation. Molecular DNA…

Impact of Management of Practices on Winter Squash Yield and Post-Harvest Nutrient Density

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

By examining the bacteria, Archaea, and fungi living in soils, this project will provide insights on how farming practices and land management affect the microbes that make soils healthy. This…
