Amy Marcarelli, an associate professor in Michigan Technological University's department of biological sciences, has received a National Science Foundation CAREER Award to study study nitrogen fixation/denitrification in streams and rivers throughout the US.
The watery world under winter’s ice is a mystery. It’s also a world full of sound. Now, as the days lengthen and the ice is retreating, researchers at Michigan Technological University mark their first winter season of underwater acoustic studies.
Only three wolves seem to remain in Isle Royale National Park. Researchers from Michigan Technological University observed the wolves during their annual Winter Study, and the lone group, at an unprecedented low, is a sharp decline from nine wolves observed last winter.
Researchers from Michigan Tech and Rockford University have caught the same Golden-winged Warbler, the first time this has happened for the species. The warblers are proposed for listing as an endangered species and show the importance for of migratory routes for feathered travelers.
Millions of miles of tunnels criss-cross the ground under old mining communities across the United States. Abandoned, falling apart and choked with water, the tunnels are often viewed as a dangerous legacy. But the water in these mines could actually be a major geothermal resource.
Amber Roth, a research assistant professor in the School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science at Michigan Tech, is partnering with researchers and conservationists to protect migratory birds around the Great Lakes.
The 3-D printing revolution has changed the way we think about plastics. Everything from children’s toys to office supplies to high-value laboratory equipment can be printed. The potential savings of producing goods at the household- and lab-scale is remarkable, especially when producers use old prints and recycle them.
