CGER Research Focus – Craig Just



Craig Just, an assistant professor in the University of Iowa’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, explains his research on how mussels process nitrogen. This research will help Just quantify the impact mussels have on filtering nitrogen that enters the Mississippi River from Iowa, which ultimately causes a dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico. Just is one of ten new faculty members hired at the University of Iowa as part of their Water Sustainability Initiative.
