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.

Dutch researchers to explore seldom-seen deep water reefs

A deep water reef off the coast of a small island in the Dutch Caribbean will be explored at depths yet to be seen by scientists, according to a press release from the Netherlands’ Wageningen University . The researchers will be mapping biodiversity and collecting samples from reefs off the coast of Bonaire. They plan to travel as deep as 300 meters to observe the biodiverse and mostly unexplored reefs. A submersible from Bonaire’s Curacao Public Aquarium will take researchers down to do their observations. The sub's sediment core sampler will help the team analyze sediment in the reefs. Biological samples will be analyzed and their DNA will be coded in a molecular lab in the Netherelands’ Naturalis Biodiversity Center.

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.
