TREC in Brazil!!!

The last week of September Dr. Yuncong Li and I spent a week in Brazil with Dr. Teresa Pissarra. Teresa had previously worked in our group as a visiting scientist. We helped Teresa with a week-long water quality course while we were in Brazil - and learned a lot about Brazilian agriculture!!

We gave several talks - primarily related to our book and water quality training course.

We were able to see some very interesting agriculture and to conduct in field demonstrations for soil and water sample collection.

We also toured a sugar mill that produces sugar and ethanol.

We drove to Ubutuba and enjoyed a beautiful beach.

And, had romantic dinners! What a great place and what a wonderful host!

  1. Thanks for posting, Kati! Teresa was definitely a team favorite this summer. It's great to see this collaboration continue to bear fruit!
    I shoul note that more info about the water quality book mentioned above can be foundhere.
    I should also note that between Kati, Kevin and D.C.-based Luis, the Water Resource team is officially massive - domestic & international!
