UMaine Professors Mark Wells and Carl Tripp's NSF grant

February 6, 2009




Congratulations to UMaine professors Mark Wells and Carl Tripp. Working with a colleague from Colby College, Mark and Carl have received a $1.3 million National Science Foundation grant to continue developing a sensor that will measure iron and copper in ocean water. Those elements help sustain the growth of phytoplankton, which are important to marine ecosystems and also sequester carbon dioxide. Mechanisms for measuring their presence have wide-ranging scientific implications.
