UDaily: Breathing of the forest - UD undergraduates examining forests' roles in managing carbon and acid rain

Traversing through the woods can be quite an adventure, especially when your adventuring includes high-tech scientific equipment. 

That’s exactly what three University of Delaware students, environmental science majors Katie Junghenn and Alexey Shiklomanov from the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment and environmental engineering major Kelsey McWilliams of the College of Engineering, are finding this summer. The trio is conducting field research at the Fair Hill (Md.) Natural Resource Management Area to help improve understanding of how forests cycle carbon through the environment and how certain species of trees interact with acid rain.
