A new study, led by a team of Yale researchers, aims to determine whether an increase in extreme rain events is affecting the transport of dissolved organic matter (DOM) through the Connecticut River watershed, a phenomenon they say could alter the chemical composition and water quality of the watershed and Long Island Sound. With funding from the National Science Foundation’s MacroSystems Biology program, researchers will collect data from dozens of points across the watershed, which begins in Canada and runs through five U.S. states, before emptying into Long Island Sound. Pictured here, muddy sediment empties into Long Island Sound from the Connecticut River after Hurricane Irene in 2011.
