Dr. Pick’s team examines the factors regulating the abundance and diversity of aquatic microbes in lakes and rivers. This includes examining general water quality problems related to excess nutrient loading (algal blooms). They also study the biogeochemistry of trace metals in wetlands and the use of constructed wetlands for filtration of waste waters.
