Particulate organic matter (POM) composition in stream runoff following large storms: role of POM sources, particle size, and event characteristics

350 263 Stroud Water Research Center

Johnson, E.R., S. Inamdar, J. Kan, and R. Vargas. 2018. Journal of Geophysical Research (early online access).

Source Tracking and Spatial/Temporal Dynamics of Bacterial Contaminants in the 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.

Pathogen and Water-Quality Monitoring at White Clay Creek

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Scientists are monitoring water quality near and below dairy farms in the White Clay Creek and Red Clay Creek watersheds to measure the effectiveness of best management practices to reduce the amount of pathogens in the streams.

Microbial Population Dynamics of Periphyton Biofilms in White Clay Creek

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Stroud Center scientists deployed glass slides into three reaches of White Clay Creek with distinct streamside land uses: mature forest, restored but immature forest, and meadow from upstream to downstream. Molecular DNA fingerprints demonstrated variations of biofilm population structures on both natural surface and glass slides.

Large Runoff Flux and Transformation of Particulate Nitrogen (PN) Following Large, Intense Storms: A Critical but Unexplored Component of N Cycling in Watersheds

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

The goal of this project is to produce a comprehensive model for PN fate and transport in watersheds, especially in agroecosystems subject to climate variability.

Science Seminar Series: What’s Lurking in Your Watershed?

478 383 Stroud Water Research Center

Learn the good, bad, and ugly about the microorganisms that may be found in your watershed. This eye-opening lecture will serve to help you better understand your watershed and how we can ensure clean, fresh water for our watershed.

Metaecosystems and the Upstream Legacy: Influence of Dissolved Organic Matter on the Structure and Function of Streambed Bacterial Communities

400 292 Stroud Water Research Center

Investigators explore how the quality of organic molecules changes with distance downstream and how those changes influence the composition of the communities of streambed microbes using that food resource.

Water Science Careers: Fisheries and Microbiology

1000 563 Stroud Water Research Center

Laura Borecki Zgleszewski describes her work in the Fish Ecology and Microbiology groups at Stroud™ Water Research Center.

Microbial Fuel Cells

713 398 Stroud Water Research Center

Stroud™ Water Research Center is exploring the possibility of generating clean and renewable energy by using microorganisms.

DNA Tool Helps Scientists Identify Bacteria in Streams

349 291 Stroud Water Research Center

Stroud Center scientists are using DNA to identify the likely sources of fecal bacteria in streams, a potential human health risk.
