Project Summary

Assessment of Water Quality and Soil Sequestration to Ensure Environmental Quality at Georgia Southern University Campus

Dr. Arpita Saha (PI), Dr. Subhrajit Saha (Co-PI), and Matthew Pfister (Co-PI)

The proposed project has two parts, first part involves analysis of campus surface water quality and the second part involves measurement of campus soil carbon storage. The storm water runoff from off-campus and on-campus sources has the potential to pollute the campus water bodies and the findings of our study will recommend remedial strategies, which may help authorities to take necessary actions. The campus soil carbon distribution was inventoried and the factors (land use, management) supporting soil C stocking will be identified and recommended to help authorities promote climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies on campus.
