Dan Rogers collects groundwater from the coastal aquifer at Waquoit Bay. Dan’s research examines the role of microbes in consuming and transforming nitrogen within the subterranean estuary, a mixing zone between fresh and salty groundwater that exists beneath many beaches along the coastline. This work has implications for how groundwater nutrient discharges are impacting the health of many populated coastal estuaries. (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
