CARD scientist Phil Gassman was announced as the recipient of a National Science Foundation grant that will pair him with researchers from the University of Iowa and the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. The University of Iowa will take the lead on the project.

The grant totals $1 million between the three universities, which is to be used for gathering and sharing water quality information from five states along the upper Mississippi River. For his portion of the project, Gassman will receive $100,000 to create a computer model to determine how nutrients flow through the watershed.

The project is set to run from August, 2018 to August 2021.
