(Fig.1 ) Field Introduction by Mark Green


After coming back from the 49th Hubbard Brook Meeting, the Shoestring group had science night again! This time Mark Green from Plymouth State University brought his understandings of hydrology to Bartlett. All the Shoestring members gathered in the conference room at the Bartlett Experimental Forest to enjoy the magic of hydrology in the forest. Maybe you will feel strange, how could two groups researching in different areas have a discussion? Actually, that’s the real science! The forest is a large ecosystem that provides various research fields which needs scientists in different areas to study together!

During the discussion Mark introduced the general hydrology research history in the forest and the main methods in doing research. A new world was showed in front of us and almost everyone brought up related interesting topics based on their own research knowledge. We also discussed several new idea of doing research combining the knowledge of hydrology and biochemistry. Science night is a chance for the Shoestring group to learn new things and communicate with each other. Before that night, hydrology was just a word of mouth towards the Shoestring group. This night gave us a new angle to do research and allow us to be better in the future!

We are looking forward to next science night! Dear friends, guess who will be the next guest?
