Washington Stream Geomorphology and the Local Watershed
This summer, I was an intern in Dr. Eileen Zerba’s lab with several other students working on the continued monitoring of Princeton University water quality. Each of us also worked on individual projects which we developed over the course of the internship. We sampled Washington Stream, Elm Stream, and Carnegie Lake. We then ran nutrient analysis on these samples back in the lab. For the third component of this internship, I focused on compiling the geomorphology of Washington Stream based on data gathered through several classes projects from the last few years to use as a pre-restoration baseline.
