Internship: Quantifying the Terrestrial Flux of Phosphorus to...
The overarching goal of this project is to characterize and quantify the terrestrial controls on stream water phosphorus (P) content and cycling in the East River Valley near Gothic, CO. The intern will join a multi-disciplinary team of scientists who are developing processed based understanding of biogeochemical cycling in Rocky Mountains ecosystems. Through this collaboration, the intern will gain insight into complexities of scaling up measurements from complex heterogeneous terrain and will gain hands on experience with field and laboratory-based biogeochemistry. In addition to gaining experience in conducting mission critical collaborative science, the inter will have an opportunity to build their professional network and learn more about the intricacies of conducting research with governmental agencies. The results of this work will have implications for management of terrestrial lands and water quality in the western US.
