SOWA and ISBB congratulate high school intern Anna Mičanová for her outstanding work and presentation of her project “South Bohemian Carbon Pools”, for which she was awarded 3rd place at the Czech Academy of Science’s Open Science Student Scientific Conference held in Prague Nov. 24-25, 2022 (Otevřená Věda, Studentské vědecké conference, AV ČR). Anna’s work in the IRMS and Organic Geochemistry labs, in collaboration with Travis Meador, Karelys Umbria-Salinas, Ljubov Polaková, and Marek Kopáček, has demonstrated that molecules that accumulate in lakes and ponds are systematically imprinted with the stable isotope signature of local water. This information can be used to decipher how molecules long molecules exist in the environment, how they are processed, and how they contribute to an ecosystem’s capacity to store energy and serve as a source or sink of atmospheric CO2.
