Joel presented the lab's road salt research at the Maryland Water Monitoring Council's 20th annual conference and at the MD-DE-DC US Geological Survey Water Science Center. Results included work done by TU Geology undergrad Greg W on changes in aquifer/soil chemistry and by ENVS grad student Brandon S on surface and ground water chemistry downgradient of suburban stormwater management basins.
Joel and his student Greg installed a research grade (Campbell Scientific) meteorology station at the Towson University Field Station in Monkton, MD. Data will soon be available online.
Joel, colleagues, and students have been funded to establish the Towson University Water Resources Facility, which will be an on-campus resource for teaching and research on the connections between groundwater and surface water in urban settings as well as urban stormwater.
Joel presented the lab's road salt research in a seminar in the Department of Geology, Kent State University and in a talk at the Maryland Ground Water Symposium.
Leandra Glumac (Juniata College) has joined the lab as an Environmental Science MS thesis student!
