Linking Fecal Bacteria in Rivers to Environmental Factors and Sources
Join us for a webinar on Nov 30, 2015 at 11:30 AM EST.
Note: This is a webinar broadcast of a live event being held in Lansing, Michigan.
Join us to hear about a recent study (Verhougstraete et al. 2015) that characterized fecal pollution across the lower peninsula of Michigan. The researchers used source-tracking markers to sample 64 river systems in Michigan for E. coli and the human fecal bacteria B. thetaiotaomicron. Advances in source-tracking allow water scientists to track down the origin of non-point pollution more accurately than ever before.
11:30-12:30 Presentation by study authors Dr. Marc Verhougstraete, Dr. Joan Rose, Dr. David Hyndman, and Dr. Sherry Martin
12:30-1:00 Q&A session
