As a MESc student, my interests include the carbon cycle and more specifically, greenhouse gas emissions from streams to the atmosphere. Globally, most freshwater streams and rivers are supersaturated with carbon dioxide compared to the atmosphere. Some freshwater is also supersaturated with methane and other greenhouse gases. Consequently, these waters are a source of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. My research is to quantify greenhouse concentrations in small order streams in the Salmon River Watershed, CT. I am looking at the effects of precipitation and surrounding wetlands on in-stream greenhouse gas concentrations.
