Research Symposium 
  • Presentations from local researchers 

  • Three minute student research presentations

  • Poster session (registration deadline extended to January 26th)

Sustainably producing enough food for the world's growing population is one of this century’s defining challenges. Innovative solutions are needed to increase productivity without further degrading agricultural lands or adversely affecting local and global ecosystems. One promising avenue lies in understanding and managing the soil microbiome, which collectively provides critical ecosystem services that underpin both productivity and sustainability. Management practices that alter the soil environment also alter the soil microbiome.

The re-emergence of large blooms of benthic filamentous algae in the lower Great Lakes during the late 1990s and early 2000s seemed to run counter to evidence of ecosystem recovery from eutrophication after point-source phosphorus controls were enacted under the Great Lakes under the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement.

Earth Science Department Seminar

Microbe-mineral-fluid interactions: Case studies from natural environments, industrial problems and arctic biogeochemical processes 

Presented by Dr. Jenine McCutcheon, School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds

Abstract: Microbial processes influence geochemical reaction pathways in a range of natural and engineered environments. These processes often result in the precipitation, alteration, or dissolution of mineral phases, thereby also altering the chemistry of the surrounding fluid.
