Dr. Upal Ghosh featured on Smithsonian Science website


A recent article on the Smithsonian Science website highlights the work of CBEE professor Upal Ghosh, along with Cynthia Gilmour from the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, and their colleagues. These researchers have found a new low-cost, nonhazardous way to reduce the toxicity of hot spots polluted with mercury by using charcoal to trap it in the soil.
