Congratulations to AWRI graduate student Katie Knapp for receiving a Great Lakes Research Fellowship through CILER and NOAA-GLERL! As a member of the Biddanda lab, Katie's research focuses on carbon cycling in Muskegon Lake using high-frequency measurements from the Muskegon Lake Observatory and other buoys spread around the lake. Changes in dissolved oxygen will be used to quantify primary production rates (photosynthesis), which is important for understanding carbon balance and fish production. The fellowship allows Katie to pay for buoy equipment, to travel to meet with her NOAA-GLERL co-mentor, and to travel and present her research at a conference. Well done, Katie!
