FIU-ARC scientists conducting fieldwork in Savannah River Site with research team from Savannah River Ecology Lab (SREL)

Dr. Mehrnoosh Mahmoudi, Post-Doc Associate, and Ron Hariprashad, DOE fellow, are in Savannah River Site where they are conducting fieldwork in Tims Branch with assistance from Dr. John Seaman and his research team at the Savannah River Ecology Lab (SREL).

The aim is to collect cross-section measurements along the main Tims Branch stream, as well as in situ water quality and flow data to assist in calibration of the hydrological models being developed by ARC. Water and biofilm samples will also be collected for chemical analysis of radiological and other contaminants of concern, and to monitor the chemical by-product of a tin-based DOE-EM implemented remediation technology.
