vineyardSILC Advisory Board Member, Eve-Lyn Hinckley, recently received an NSF CAREER award for her proposal “Acid Rain to Agriculture: An Integrated Research and Education Platform to Understand Human Manipulation of the Sulfur Cycle.”

The research will occur over five years and address three primary objectives: to develop scientific methods to measure key sulfur cycling processes and chemical forms in crop systems; to create exercises that provide middle school and undergraduate students with experience doing environmental research; and to hold workshops for farmers to discuss research findings and inform crop sulfur management. Together, these activities will improve understanding and promote interaction to address how humans are changing the sulfur cycle. SILC is pleased to assist in meeting and achieving these objectives that link research to action.
