Seasons pass: Geochemical Dynamics in Silver Bow and Blacktail Creeks
Longitudinal geochemical sampling coupled with in situ incubation experiments in Silver Bow and Blacktail Creeks suggest seasonal water column sulfate reduction and unusual halogen depletion at some sites. More than three years of quarterly sampling indicate on average elevated Zn, F, Br, and Cl - but not Al - in the restored corridor relative to the control on Upper Blacktail Creek. Sequenced microbial DNA concurrently collected and extracted from a full year cycle at each site will be queried for biological contributions to elemental cycling.
