The Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill with Drs. John White and John Pardue

Ten years ago the Deepwater Horizon oil platform exploded, killing eleven crewmen and releasing about five million barrels of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico and surrounding environment. Drs. John White and John Pardue have spent much of their careers focusing on the effects of oil on the environment and ways to speed recovery efforts after spills. Join us as we discuss their papers on the relationships between oil, plant health, and microbes, as well as where we are on the road to recovery today.

Methane, Hydrology, and Constructed Wetlands with Karla Jarecke and Dr. Terry Loecke

Wetlands are important ecosystems that provide many important services, such as assisting in water quality, flood control, erosion protection, carbon removal and storage, and biodiversity. But can the plants that grow in them and hydrology affect their ability to offer these services or improve their negative side effects, such as methane production? By testing methane production in two common wetland species under both lab and field conditions, Karla Jarecke and Dr. Terry Loecke explored these questions.

Tree Harvesting, Biomass Removal, and Soil Nutrient Reserves with Dr. Dave Morris

The potential impact of forest harvesting operations on environmental conditions for tree regeneration and growth can be substantial. Dr. Dave Morris, in collaboration with colleagues from the Canadian Forest Service, has studied the potential impacts of forest biomass removal on the sustainability of harvesting practices for 25 years.

Blue Carbon in Mangrove Forests with Dr. Gabriel Nuto Nóbrega

Mangrove forests are important carbon sinks. However, the act of measuring the carbon trapped in them has proven tricky. Old methods are unreliable and leave toxic residue. Dr. Nóbrega discusses his work to find a faster, cheaper, and safer method to measure that carbon.
