Check out my resource page about road salt (NaCl) impacts on the environment and water quality & ways to reduce the impact of road salt, including alternatives.
It's been an exciting several months for members of the Moore lab. Corey and Lisa graduated in May and got jobs with environmental consulting firms. Greg graduated in December and decided to stay in the lab to do a MS degree (woohoo!). Several undergrads joined the lab in the fall. And Darcy Bird has joined the lab to do a MS thesis. 2016 looks to be a terrific year with cool people and interesting research!
Greg Woodward (Geology undergrad) gave a talk at the Annual Geological Society of America meeting on how road salt (NaCl) impacts aquifer and soil materials downgradient of stormwater management basins.
Rian Fleming (Environmental Science undergrad) gave a poster at the Annual Conference of the Maryland Water Monitoring Council about the effects of urbanization on stream water chemistry in Baltimore County.
Joel and Ron Hermann received NSF funding for TU GEO Careers (Towson University Geoscience Educational Opportunities for Careers), which is focused on increasing recruiting and retention to the geoscience majors at Towson. A significant part of the funding will support faculty-mentored, undergraduate research experiences.
