Title: Mighty Microbes Where Rivers Run

Microbes and their influential role in Earth’s climate take center stage in the area where river water and groundwater mix – an area known as the hyporheic zone. PNNL ecologist James Stegen discusses his team’s research in his “laboratory” – the zone along the Columbia, one of the nation’s largest rivers. It’s a squishy, porous lab, better known for soaking feet than serving as the “river’s liver.”
