Dartmouth scientists to probe Man against nature Hanover . A increasing scientific knowledge has enabled Man to manipulate his environment but with mixed results. As he destroys insect pests with insecticides he also kills Birds. As he aids the housewife with tier monday Wash he pollutes streams with detergents. Three Dartmouth College scientists have received a $59,400 National science foundation Grant to investigate one Way in which Man s work May have affected nature s delicate balance. The scientists plan a three year study of the Mineral cycles in a Small watershed in the Hubbard Brook experimental Forest in West Thornton . They will ultimately attempt to assess the effects resulting from human activities in the area such As use of pesticides Normal tree cutting or controlled burning. Concurrent work by the . Forest service in the same watershed will provide vital background data for the Dartmouth scientists. The Forest service is already collecting water flow and weather data so the combined research efforts will allow correlation of Mineral cycles with other events in the system. The Dartmouth scientists Are f. Herbert Bormann professor of botany Gene e. Likens assistant professor of biology and Noye m. J Hanson assistant professor of geology. They Hope that their study will reveal both practical guidelines for land management and important principles governing the operation of any similar water system. The scientists will first calculate an annual Mineral a budget Quot for the watershed. The volume of water leaving the system is known from the Forest service s continuous records. Periodic chemical measurements will enable them to estimate the amount of a Mineral substance such As Calcium in each unit of water. They can then calculate the total amount of any element leaving the system during a Given period of time. During the same period of time the amount of precipitation entering the system will be measured and the amount of the Mineral in the moisture determined. Therefore the scientists will know both the input and output a of any one Mineral element and will be Able to calculate a Mineral Quot budget Quot for the system. For most elements they expect that the total annual output in the Stream will exceed the total input in rainfall in other words the system will be losing these elements. The scientists Hope to correlate the losses with various meteorological events such As temperature fluctuations rainfall patterns and evaporation. In the intermediate phases of the study once the initial work is on a continuing basis the scientists Hope to study various biological Phenomena of the system and correlate them with the Mineral cycles. This will include the Leaf cycles soil respiration population of the Fauna and Flora of the Stream and chemical and mineralogical change in the Bedrock. Once the various biological geological chemical relationships of the watershed Are known the final phases of the study will investigate the effects of different land management practices on these relationships. Particular practices have not yet been selected but possibilities include cutting of Trees and leaving them in place Normal cutting operations controlled burning and treatment with pesticides and herbicides.
