Award Description: Spatial and temporal integration of carbon and mineral fluxes: a whole watershed approach to quantifying anthropogenic modification of critical zone carbon sequestration.
Project Description: Our overall goal is to quantify the net carbon sink (or source) due to mineral production, weathering, erosion and deposition as materials are transported and transformed across geophysical boundaries (topsoils to subsoils to aquifers to riparian floodplains to river networks to estuaries) that also traditionally separate scientific disciplines. CZO will serve as a resource to the greater scientific community through open access to data and opportunities for research projects that take advantage of the enhanced monitoring network.
Jobs Summary: Our project will actively promote hiring and training of several graduate students in interdisciplinary research. Post-doctoral associates at both UD and Stroud will be hired for this project. In addition a financial manager will be hired to help manage the graduate students and post-docs as well as financial management and reporting. Investment in equipment and supplies from scientific vendors to advance technologies will be made over the course of the grant. (Total jobs reported: 0)
