Welcome! I study how watersheds and streams transport and transform nutrients and carbon and how human activities modify these processes.
Dr. Erin Seybold I am an aquatic biogeochemist at the Kansas Geological Survey at the University of Kansas. My research integrates concepts from biogeochemistry, watershed hydrology, and ecosystem ecology to understand how nutrients and carbon move through watersheds and river networks.

News and Updates
2020 We are recruiting 2 graduate students (1 M.S. and 1 Ph.D.) to join the lab in fall 2021! Click here for more details!
Lots of exciting news in the lab! I'm thrilled to be part of 3 newly funded projects that are kicking off in fall 2020:
Critical Zone Observatory Network Cluster - Using Big Data Approaches to Assess Ecohydrologic Resilience Across Scales. For more info, please read our press release.
EPSCoR Track II - Aquatic Intermittency Effects on Microbiomes (AIMS). Click here to read more about this project.
DOE Subsurface Biogeochemical Research - Linking Nutrient Reactivity and Transport in Subsurface Flowpaths along a Terrestrial-Estuarine Continuum. Check out our project abstract to learn more!
2019 Nov: We're seeking a M.S. or Ph.D. student to work on a NOAA SeaGrant funded project on coastal hydro-biogeochemistry in CA. The position is based at UC Santa Cruz in the Zimmer Watershed Hydrology Lab. Click here for more details on the position!
Check out our recently published study on the effects of land use and hydrologic variability on regional dissolved organic carbon and nitrate export in Biogeochemistry!
Oct: I'm excited to announce that I'm starting a new position as a Hydrogeochemist at the Kansas Geological Survey at the University of Kansas!
2018 February: Check out my new paper on hydrologic and biogeochemical controls on nutrient uptake is now published in Biogeochemistry!
Oct: Zimmer, Braswell and Seybold Awarded CA Sea Grant to investigate groundwater agricultural pollution and wetland degradation in Elkhorn Slough, CA.
Nov: Getting ready for AGU! Come to my talk on Wed, Dec 12 at 11:50am to hear about our work quantifying the effects of changing winter snowmelt on nutrient fluxes from forested and agricultural catchments in Vermont! For more info, look for talk #B32A-07.
2017 June: I'm excited to announce that I'm joining the University of Vermont EPSCoR team as part of their new program seeking to understand Basin Resilience to Extreme Events (BREE) as a Post-doctoral associate.
