Remove the Water, Carry the Water

MIT/WHOI Joint Program student Dan Rogers collects groundwater from a coastal aquifer at Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. Dan's research examines the role of microbes in consuming and transforming nitrogen within the subterranean estuary, a mixing zone between fresh and salty groundwater that exists beneath many beaches along the coastline. This work has implications for how groundwater nutrient discharges are affecting the health of many populated coastal estuaries.
