Olivia Johnson


Olivia Johnson is a biologist at USGS Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center. She deploys equipment and analyzes data to examine wetland biogeochemical processes related to plant and soil conditions. This work aims to ultimately better understand carbon cycling in Prairie Pothole wetlands and other similar systems. Her current work is closely related to her master’s research in the northern Great Lakes, where she studied how wetland management techniques affect freshwater greenhouse gas flux and nutrient cycling.
