Zackry Stevenson Recipient of NSF Grant for USGS Internship

Zackry Stevenson received supplemental funding from the NSF in support of an internship at the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to distinguish between mercury mobilized during recent wildfires and historical mining activities to determine the source of in-stream mercury to Napias Creek and tributaries through water samples. Moreover, they will test if wildfire-affected soils will lead to increased mercury mobilization, resulting in high levels of methylmercury in Napias Creek. Furthermore, they believe organic matter quality will influence the proportion of methylmercury to total mercury in these watersheds.


Congratulations Zack!
