Frontiers in the Environment
with Sarah Hobbie, IonE Resident Fellow and Professor of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior, College of Biological Sciences
Eutrophication — the degradation of water quality from nutrient-rich runoff — continues to impair the capacity for urban waters to provide clean drinking water, habitat to support biodiversity, food, and recreational and aesthetic opportunities. Hobbie and colleagues are taking a watershed approach to understanding the sources of nutrients that are contributing to urban water pollution. In this Frontiers talk, Hobbie will share insights from her research that might point toward novel solutions to urban water quality issues.
