Glendon Hunsinger of Susquehanna, PA, has received a Graduate Student Excellence in Research Award from Binghamton University, State University of New York.
Each year, Binghamton University recognizes research excellence by graduate students with a set of awards designed to recognize the wide variety of approaches to the advancement of knowledge on the Binghamton campus and the important role played by graduate students in research at the University.
Hunsinger has received two prestigious fellowships, one from the Environmental Protection Agency and the other from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. These grants have supported his doctoral research in what he characterizes as “the cause-effect interactions of natural and human perturbations on biogeochemical cycling at terrestrial-aquatic boundaries.” His work, some of which has been published in the Journal of Geophysical Research, analyzes what happens to chemicals and sediments in such places as wetlands and floodplains. Hunsinger’s work looks closely at the impact of natural causation and human development on wetlands, riparian zones, floodplains, estuaries and coastal margins. His research underscores the dynamism of these natural systems and offers serious revisions of long-cherished beliefs about the systemic functions of watersheds.
