Climate change and Arctic landscapes grant nearly $1 million
Tuesday, July 12, 2011
Professor George Kling has received almost $960,000 from the National Science Foundation and the Marine Biological Laboratory.
Kling and his team of researchers will be working on the overall direction of the land-water component of the Long Term Ecological Research Network (LTER) project. They will perform biogeochemical sampling in soils, lakes and rivers, and integrate their results with various modeling components. Kling will do chemical analyses for cations, anions, alkalinity, dissolved gases, and dissolved inorganic carbon. He will work with other component leaders and the lead principal investigator to synthesize and publish the findings. Kling will also coordinate the land-water research with other NSF projects funded to work at the same sites, e.g., NSF-Long Term Research in Environmental Biology and NSF-OPP Arctic System Science. The grant was awarded in March 2011 for six years.
