Graduate student Kriddie Whitmore published a paper in the journal Ecosphere, examining the effects of geomorphology on aquatic carbon transformation in the Ecuadorian Andes. Her study provides the first estimates of gas transfer velocity in a high-elevation tropical catchment across steep environmental gradients and highlights the combined effects of hydrology and stream morphology in co-regulating aquatic gas exchange in páramo streams.
