New publication Nature Communications!

I’m super excited to share with you our new paper in Nature Communications Earth & Environment about viral infections of sulfide oxidizing bacteria! Congrats to Alice Bosco for championing this idea and bringing it all together!

New sulfide-films method published!

Check out our films method that was published in Marine Chemistry.

We demonstrate that photographic film can capture the spatial concentrations and stable isotope compositions of dissolved sulfide from water columns and pore waters. These films can be used in a wide variety of environments such as our study of the highly dynamic production and oxidation of hydrogen sulfide in the mud of the seagrass meadow shown below.

I’m so stoked that our lab group just published “Midcontinental Native American population dynamics and late Holocene hydroclimate extremes” in Nature Scientific Reports.

It seems like ages ago when we first collected our sediment cores from Martin Lake in 2013.
