Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from soils comprise a major component of the global carbon cycle. The responses of soil CO2 fluxes to changes in environmental conditions remain unclear but are critical for predictive modeling of global carbon fluxes with climate change.

Heather Townsend

MSc Student

My research focuses on the effects of the freeze-thaw cycles on carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus speciation dynamics across the reactive interfaces in agroecosystems.

Anthropogenic phosphorus (P) inputs into agricultural soils have exceeded crop demand for decades. The resulting release of the excess P to surface water contributes to eutrophication, including the occurrence of harmful algal blooms (HABs), with severe threats to drinking water security and aquatic ecosystems.
