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.

Lake Michigan Yellow Perch Bounce Back After Commercial Ban

For decades, commercial fishing for yellow perch was allowed in southern Lake Michigan. This persisted until 1996 when it was outlawed, giving perch stocks there some time to recover. Scientists had for some time assumed that this fishing ban would not affect the reproduction cycles of the perch quickly and that they were going to need a long time to revert back to the cycles they relied on before commercial fishing ever started. But new research led by scientists at Purdue University finds that maturation schedules of yellow perch in southern Lake Michigan are much more resilient than had been previously thought possible.
