We're an international team of ecologists studying streams in the Hengill region of Iceland. Our research is focused on understanding the effects of global warming on stream food webs and ecosystem processes.
Lots of activity in the past few months, despite the lack of blog posts. Some of the team (Alex, Philip, Jim, and Tanner) is leaving for Iceland in 10 days to start building the experimental channels. Here are a few shots of our new header tanks, experimental chambers, and nutrient dripping gear. Now, if only Icelandair would allow 20 bags per passenger. . . . .
New header tanks (a la Jim hood) catching lots of attention on MSU campus. . .
