We are a group of freshwater ecologists from the Biology Department at St. Catherine University in Saint Paul, Minnesota studying the effect of temperature and nutrient availability on metabolism and nitrogen fixation in geothermally active streams in the Hengill region of Iceland. This is a collaborative research effort with our partners from Montana State University, the University of Alabama, the University of Iceland, and the Institute of Freshwater Fisheries in Iceland. See links to our collaborators labs below.

|Delor, Jill, and Bayley - last field day!|
|Delor and Jill with the gas chromatograph |
in its new location.
|Incredible day in the Hengill |
fog and rain!
|Yes, it's a little windy and cold, but |
just look at that view! And, no black flies!
