About Kaelin

Kaelin is a research scientist on the aquatics team and has been working on the NEON project since 2015. The main NEON data products that Kaelin works on are dissolved gas (DP1.20097), reaeration (DP1.20190), water quality (DP1.20288), stream discharge rating curve (DP4.00133), and stream discharge (DP4.00130), which include data from both observational field sampling and in situ instrumentation. Kaelin also works with field science to develop mobile applications for data collection and front end validation for a variety of aquatic protocols.

Kaelin has a background in dissolved organic matter biogeochemistry in freshwater and coastal environments. Past studies have used fluorescence and absorbance spectroscopy of water samples to better understand photo-chemical and biological transformations of organic matter in a freshwater estuary of the Great Lakes, Antarctic coastal ponds, the Gulf of Maine, the Florida Everglades, the Okavango Delta in Botswana, and drinking water sources in Colorado. In addition, Kaelin had worked with drinking water utilities to prepare for wildfires in their source water watersheds using field sampling and laboratory experiments.
