Messy Updates


The Messer Research Team is excited to start studying neonicotinoid fate and transport in Midwestern and Southeastern rivers starting Spring 2018 through a USDA-NIFA grant!


Congrats to Mary Keilhauer for placing third at the Nebraska Water Symposium poster competition!


The Messer Research Group recently had one new publication accepted in the journal Water! The publication compares four commonly used kinetic models in two distinct wetland systems at the mesocosm scale. The publication can be found at the following link:

Comparison of Four Nitrate Removal Kinetic Models in Two Distinct Wetland Restoration Mesocosm Systems


The Messer Research Group recently had two publications accepted in the Journal of Ecological Engineering! The publications focus on utilizing wetlands to treat agricultural drainage water and identifying nitrogen removal processes occuring within two distinct wetlands systems. The publications can be found at the following links.

Nitrate Removal Potential of Restored Wetlands Loaded with Agricultural Drainage Water: A Mesocosm Scale Experimental Approach
