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…

Mitigating Agricultural Pollution of Fresh Water and Combating Climate Change by Restoring Soil Health

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.…

Low-Head Milldams as Hotspots for Denitrification and Nitrogen Consumption: Hydrologic and Biogeochemical Controls

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

As dam removal has increased in recent years in an effort to improve fish habitat and reduce financial liability, few studies have addressed the consequences of these removals for water…

Long-Term Research in Environmental Biology: Trajectory for the Recovery of Stream Ecosystem Structure and Function During Reforestation

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Stream restoration in the United States is a multibillion-dollar industry, yet long-term monitoring of its effectiveness is virtually nonexistent. To fill this gap, the Stroud Center restored a portion of…

Long-Term Research in Environmental Biology: River Ecosystem Responses to Floodplain Restoration

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

After 25 years of litigation, a massive ecological restoration is under way in the Upper Clark Fork River, Mont. Metal-laden floodplain soils are being removed, floodplains are being reconnected with…

Evaluating the Effects of Watershed-Scale Agricultural Best Management Practices on Water Quality

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

In early 2020, stream bank fencing, forested buffers, and barnyard improvements were installed on Amish farms in Lancaster County, Pa. The farms are nested in a small watershed drained by…

Evaluating NCRN Data Quality, Revising and Updating Protocols, and Analyzing Long-Term Data

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

The National Park Service National Capital Region Inventory and Monitoring Network (NCRN) has monitored stream water quality and quantity for more than 15 years in shallow streams located in 10…

Evaluating How Conventional, Conservation, and Organic Farming Management Practices Enhance Soil Health and Improve Water Quality

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This project investigates how different agricultural management practices influence water quality and soil health. Using Rodale Institute’s 37-year-old Farming Systems Trial and a recent transition to organic farming at the…

Dynamics of Phytoplankton Growth and Transport in River Networks From Local to Continental Scales

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

The project proposes a transformative approach using real-time monitoring of algae concentrations during storm events to evaluate the effects of excessive nutrients on entire watersheds. The project includes a regional…
