Research Interests: 

Emily Bernhardt is a biogeochemist who has long been interested in the role that stream ecosystems play within watersheds in altering the form, timing and magnitude of nutrient exports. She conducted her dissertation research at HBEF in the 1990's, exploring the impacts of forest age, ice storms and carbon supply on stream nitrogen cycling. In the 2010's Emily began working at HBEF again. Bernhardt is now collaborating with Gene Likens, Emma Rosi, John Campbell and Lindsey Rustad in the maintenance of the long-term rain and stream chemistry record. New field research is exploring the impact of acid rain legacies and acid rain mitigation on watershed C and N cycling and the effect of warmer springs on the productivity of stream ecosystems.
