Rebecca T. Barnes
B.A. Oberlin College; M.S.E.S. in Water Resources, Indiana University, M.P.A. in Environmental Policy & Natural Resource Management, Indiana University, and Ph.D. in Forestry & Environmental Studies, Yale University. Research is focused on the biogeochemistry and ecology of nitrogen and carbon cycling within watersheds as well as the impact of human activities on these cycles. This work has focused on examining the impacts of a variety of global change drivers (atmospheric deposition, land use change, and warming) on these cycles across a range of ecosystems. Recent projects include: linkages between organic matter quality and nitrogen cycling in streams, the effects of warming on nitrogen cycling in the alpine, and impacts of urbanization on the lateral transport of carbon to tropical and subtropical rivers. Articles in Biogeochemistry, Environmental Science & Technology, Chemical Geology, Ecological Applications, and EOS. After teaching on a one-year appointment at Bard CEP, Dr. Barnes is now a Postdoctoral Associate at Rutgers University. Personal Website
