Event Description

Speakers: Gilbert N. Hanson, Caitlin Young and Josephine Durand

Topic: Fate of Nitrogen in Groundwater Entering Stony Brook and Port Jefferson Harbors

Nitrates in marine waters surrounding Long Island are a serious problem because they encourage the growth of algae leading to, for example, red tide, and can result in low oxygen conditions (hypoxia) in bottom waters which is deadly to marine life.

Gilbert N. Hanson is a Distinguished Service Professor in the Department of Geosciences. Caitlin Young is a PhD student in the Department of Geosciences who is studying the geochemistry of the groundwater and marine water in the mixing zone to evaluate what is happening to nitrogen. Josephine Durand is a PhD student in the Department of Geosciences who is using geophysics to evaluate the extents and amounts of freshwater that are entering the harbors.
