Julia Guimond (AGU-H3S vice-chair)
University of Delaware
Julia Guimond is finishing her PhD research at the University of Delaware, working with Dr. Holly Michael on the interactions between hydrology, biology, and geochemistry in coastal wetlands. Julia’s doctoral research incorporated both field and modeling work and transcended topics from coastal wetland carbon budget feedbacks with climate change to adaptive management in coastal agricultural land.
This summer Julia will be starting a postdoctoral position at Dalhousie University working with Dr. Barret Kurylyk. As an NSF Earth Sciences Postdoctoral Fellow, she will be researching high-latitude aquifer-ocean exchange under changing climatic conditions. Outside of the office, Julia is an avid hiker and ocean swimmer, coffee lover, and carbohydrate connoisseur.
Research tidbit: New study reveals widespread and seasonally variable antibiotic concentrations in rural streams and drinking water wells
In both human and veterinary medicine, antibiotics are used to combat infections, and the extent of antibiotic use is on the rise. Antibiotics consumed by humans and animals can end up in the environment through a number of different pathways including wastewater treatment facility effluent, septic leaching, and runoff. Once in the environment, antibiotics can … Continue reading Research tidbit: New study reveals widespread and seasonally variable antibiotic concentrations in rural streams and drinking water wells
Much like groundwater discharges into rivers and streams, groundwater also discharges into the ocean. The discharge of terrestrially based water to the coastal ocean is called submarine groundwater discharge, or SGD, and has been observed globally, particularly in nearshore environments. SGD impacts both terrestrial and marine environments. It discharges terrestrially-based water that is frequently high … Continue reading ECR Hydrology Research Tidbit: Freshwater? Deep in the Sea?
