Amazon sediment studied through Andes trip down tributary

A team of researchers led by scientists from the University of South Carolina Dornsife traveled to the Peruvian jungle to understand how sediment and plant matter travel down the Andes Mountains and into the Amazon River system, according a first-person account from Sarah Feakins, assistant professor of earth sciences at USC Dornsife. The team focused on a tributary to the Amazon River, the Kosnipata River. They started at the headwaters, traveling up treacherous gravel mountain roads. They ended in the Amazonian floodplain, where Feakins said the river was orange from colloids in the soil. The team spent most of their time collecting and filtering water to obtain sediment samples. Feakins described the work as collecting by day and filtering by night.

50-year fertilizer study shows mixed results on soil quality

A new report authored by researchers from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln suggests that the use of inorganic nitrogen and phosphorus for fertilization improves crop yields, but can have negative impacts on soil quality, the  American Society of Agronomy has reported . A study of crop lands in western Kansas has shown that inorganic fertilization increases organic carbon stocks while damaging soil’s structural quality. Researchers collected soil samples from experimental fields fertilized with various amounts of inorganic fertilizers to determine how different nutrient levels might impact soil quality. The results showed that applying nitrogen and phosphorus at high rates can expedite soil erosion and cause other structural issues.

Guardians of the Riverbank: Planting Trees to Protect Water Quality and Wildlife

In fall of 2017, the Connecticut River Conservancy (CRC) along with their project partners improved more than 9,000 feet of riverbank by planting 5,690 native trees and shrubs to protect the Connecticut River and its tributaries. The trees now guard against erosion and pollution on seven farms in New Hampshire and Vermont, and expand the existing habitat for local wildlife. This kind of project is part of CRC's core work. In August of 2011, Hurricane Irene roared up the East Coast of the United States, leaving a tell-tale path of destruction behind. Listed as the eighth-costliest hurricane in American history, the storm also hurt the watershed of the Connecticut River.
