 previous story | next story

Kara Vadman is working this summer as an intern at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. She received her internship through the USGS/NAGT Cooperative Field Training Program, run jointly by the USGS and the National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT).

Working with Meagan Gonneea, a National Science Foundation (NSF) Postdoctoral Fellow (see “New Postdoctoral Researchers Enriching USGS Science in Woods Hole, Massachusetts,” this issue), Vadman is investigating the impact of nitrogen loading and sea-level rise on carbon sequestration in coastal salt marsh ecosystems through evaluation of sediment cores. Vadman completed her undergraduate degree in geology at Colgate University in May 2014. At Colgate, she studied Antarctic marine diatom assemblages and participated in two cruises aboard the research vessel ice breaker (RVIB) Nathaniel B. Palmer. In August, Vadman will join the graduate program at University of South Florida College of Marine Science.
