Investigating the drivers of greenhouse gas emissions in natural and manmade systems

Streams and rivers contribute significantly to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, but there is a lack of research about the drivers of these emissions. My project aims to investigate the drivers of emissions of three of the most prevalent GHGs: Carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O). I will be comparing the emissions of these gasses in the natural system of the Logan River and in the manmade canal systems in Logan, UT. By collecting other data such as dissolved gasses, water chemistry, and many other metrics, I hope to uncover the drivers of the GHG emissions in these systems.



Life Outside of USU

In my free time, I love to explore Utah by running, skiing, and biking all around this beautiful state! In a perfect world I’d spend more nights in a tent than in my own bed.
