Ecosystems Research

Brenda E. Kitchens

My early work focused on the quantitative determination of physical and chemical characteristics, and the transformation, fate and effects of organic chemicals in soils, waters, and sediments. Later, I acquired literature and data, and developed and tested databases, including the FATE database.  More recently, I sampled, analyzed, and designed a database for a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) project in Georgia streams, along with responsibilities for Special Emphasis Programs, Environmental Education, and Outreach at ERD. Currently, I sample and assist in analyzing inorganic nutrients in local streams.
