Velay Scholar Leanne Wiskemann begins sediment sampling project

Leanne Wiskemann began working on a project this summer to sample sediment from urban streams and look for sediment-bound P.  We are exploring different digestion methods.  Unfortunately, the ICP is down this summer, which makes it hard to analyze P.  Fortunately, I have a nutrient logger that I use in the field that I pulled in to make our P measurements!

Leanne is a Frances Velay Scholar.  Her funding comes from a grant to the college (PI Sue Varnum) to encourage more female scientists to get involved in research.
