SwRI®, UTSA researchers map Edwards Aquifer with innovative new tracers

(Southwest Research Institute) Researchers from Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) and The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) are using unique DNA-based tracers to characterize the recharge and flow patterns in the Edwards Aquifer. The work, led by Dr. Ronald Green of SwRI's Space Science and Engineering Division and Dr. Vikram Kapoor of UTSA's College of Engineering is supported by a $125,000 grant from the Connecting through Research Partnerships (Connect) Program.
