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!
Joel gave a plenary talk at the Urban Geochemistry Workshop in Columbus entitled, 'Stable isotopes of CO2 as a method to quantify anthropogenic and natural sources of carbon in an urban setting'
Joel and several colleagues had an internal Fisher College proposal funded to establish a Water Resources Facility on campus. Several well nests will be installed and a downgradient stream sampled. The Water Resources Facility will be used for teaching and to research chemical and physical connections between groundwater and surface water in an urban setting. The Facility will add a valuable component to the Urban Environmental Biogeochemistry Laboratory.
