Itasca Research featured in “Upstream” publication

A story on our research project on Arco, Budd, Deming, and Josephine lakes in Itasca State Park was featured in the publication “Upstream“. The publication is a newsletter for the Itasca Biological Station and Laboratories, which is a field station operated by the University of Minnesota College of Biological Sciences. The article highlights our work funded by an NSF CAREER award to identify more meromictic lakes in the Midwest, particularly those with iron. We are also interested in the unique biogeochemical aspects of these lakes, such as methane production.
