Using Microbial Source Tracking to Identify Potential Bacterial Sources in White Clay Creek

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 with the goal of targeting best management practices and…

Tidal Rivers Biofingerprinting Sediment: Resolving Sediment Connectivity Between Rivers and Estuaries by Tracking Particles With Their Microbial Genetic Signature

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Sediment flowing from rivers to estuaries is a double-edged sword: too much sediment can harm oyster beds but not enough sediment can starve tidal marshes. Measuring whether a river is…

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 2021–2022: Jinjun Kan,…

Soil Microbes and Bean Nutrients in Organic and Conventional Systems

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Little is known regarding soil microbes and nutrition levels in vegetables under different farming practices. We are connecting soil microbial community structure, extracellular enzyme activity, and nutrient density in green/black…

Saturated, Suffocated, and Salty: Hotspots of Dissimilatory Nitrate Reduction in Anoxic Riparian Soils

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This project investigates the origin of the nitrogen stored in the riparian soils above milldams, the dominant processes controlling its transformation, and its risk of being released into the stream.…

Restoration Project Impact Assessment in Support of Delaware River Watershed Initiative

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This project quantifies the positive impacts of restoration projects on water quality and soil health associated with the Delaware River Watershed Initiative. (Project details may change over the lifespan of…

Recovery of Nutrient Processes and Microbial Communities in Relict Hydric Soils Following Restoration

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This research explores how microbes and biogeochemical processes in buried relict soils evolve after restoration and how these organisms and processes can be harnessed to remove nitrogen before it pollutes…

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…
