KWRRI Annual Technical Reports (USGS’s 104b Grant Program)


The FY2011 Annual Technical Report for Kentucky consolidates reporting requirements for the Section 104(b) base grant award into a single document that includes; 1) a synopsis of each research project that was conducted during the period, 2) citations for related publications, reports, and presentations, 3) a description of information transfer activities, 4) a summary of student support during the reporting period, and 5) notable awards and achievements during the year.

Project 2011KY166B (Sewage to fertilizer: a proposed solution to water pollution) was not initiated because the principal investigator (Dr. Rebecca Evans Kelley) resigned from the Department of Biological Sciences at Northern Kentucky University between the time the application was originally submitted and when funding was eventually made available through the program to conduct the project. As a result, the project was cancelled, no research was conducted, and no report for this project is provided.

Project 2011KY213B (Use of gene expression in longear sunfish (Lepomis megalotis) and green sunfish (Lepomis cyanellus) as a biomarker of polychlorinated biphenyl and metal exposure) was delayed in starting. As a result, no significant progress was completed during FY 2011. The project report will be included in the FY 2012 Annual Technical Report.
