The objective of this project will be to statistically characterize the temporal variability of manganese concentrations in ground and surface waters that may serve as source waters for public drinking water supplies. Concentrations of manganese do vary over time as characteristics of surface waters or groundwater flow change seasonally or annually. We seek to assign statistically based limits to how much those concentrations may vary using existing data from several databases. The project work will be computer based and very quantitative in nature. It will involve manipulation of sizeable data files, use of preprogrammed functions to manipulate the data and use of powerful statistical software.

Interested students can contact Diane Manganaro who works with Dr. Hutcheson (who will be reviewing the applicants) at 617.556.1158 or by e-mail for further information.

If anyone wants to follow through and apply, go to our Intern Website and complete an application form and return it to Dr. Michael Hutchenson and Diane Manganaro.
