Graduate Research Topic
I study microbialites in Fayetteville Green Lake. Microbialites are interesting carbonate rock structures that are coated with a thick outer most active microbial mat. Microbialites are found in freshwater and are similar to stromatolites their marine equivalent. Microbialites are found in several lakes globally, however, exactly what causes microbialites to form is unknown. I am performing a biomarker analysis, identifying fatty acids, sterols, alcohols and hopanoids and a pigment analysis in an attempt to determine what the major microbial components of Green Lake microbialites are and comparing them to other microbialites globally.
