Hi all! This summer I'm interning in Professor Fulweiler's lab at Boston University for six weeks through the Boston University Research Internship in Science and Engineering (RISE) Program. I will be studying the nitrogen cycle and greenhouse gases in salt marshes. I'll be updating this page frequently with what I've been doing in the lab, so check back often! And follow us on Twitter @Fulweilerlab - I'll be posting there too.
My big project today was helping Taylor label 1,000 new exetainers (glass vials) with numbers and then taping over the labels. We got up to number 536 today! The vials will hold the greenhouse gas (CO2, CH4, & N2O) samples I will collect with Hollie on Monday from a salt marsh just north of Boston. I also learned about filtering water for dissolved inorganic nutrients and I made about 50 filter tips to be used out in the field tomorrow!
