CNR Student Selected for International Program in Sweden

February 25, 2019

College of Natural Resources doctoral candidate Sarah Burnet is one of 27 graduate students selected nationally for the first cohort of the Limnology and Oceanography Research Exchange (LOREX) program run by the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography. The LOREX program connects U.S. aquatic science graduate students with international scholars to collaborate on research at the collaborator's home institution. Burnett will collaborate with Janne Karlsson and Ann-Kristin Bergstrom at the Climate Impacts Research Centre at the Abisko Scientific Research Station associated with Umeå University in Sweden for two months in 2019. While at the Centre, she will assess the role of sediment-released phosphorus from laboratory incubated cores collected from arctic lakes. Her research in Sweden will be part of her doctoral dissertation, advised by Frank Wilhelm, focusing on sediment biogeochemistry and physical limnology to inform decisions for lake management.
