Microbial iron reduction in clay minerals: new insights from stable iron isotopes

The paper entitled “Consecutive Fe redox cycles decrease bioreducible Fe(III) and Fe isotope fractionations by eliminating small clay particles” was published in the journal Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta by ERG researchers Bingjie Shi, Christina Smeaton, Chris Parsons and Philippe Van Cappellen in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  The paper presents the very first experimental data on the changes in iron (Fe) isotope fractionation of a Fe-rich clay mineral during successive redox cycles.

Summer School on Climate Change and Water Security in Urbanized Watersheds at the University of Waterloo

The University of Waterloo’s Water Institute and Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change co-hosted the 2021 summer school on “Climate Change and Water Security in Urbanized Watersheds”. The summer school ran over three weeks, from May 31 to June 14 and targeted graduate students and practitioners. The program included talks and discussions by leading water and climate change scholars with a focus on interdisciplinary approaches. On June 7, Philippe gave his presentation entitled “Urbanization as a driver of global environmental change”.
