Lakes and reservoirs contribute significantly to atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases such as methane. As an NSF Graduate Research Fellow at WSUV, I study methane cycling in lakes and reservoirs and how human management affects the process. Understanding the controls on biogeochemical transformations of methane from lake & reservoir sediments to the atmosphere will improve our methane emission estimates from these systems. It may also potentially inform our management decisions in order to minimize reservoir contribution to atmospheric methane emissions.
