About Charlotte

Charlotte Roehm is a limnologist and biogeochemist. She holds a Ph.D. from McGill University, Canada and a BSc. from the University of London, UK. Prior to joining NEON, Charlotte was an Assistant Professor at the State University of New York. During this time she obtained an EPA GLRI large grant for the design and deployment of a set of observing buoys in Lake Erie. As the PI, Charlotte spearheaded the project through all stages of its life cycle - working with engineering firms on the design through to deployment, data analysis and QA/QC. She partnered with the NWS to provide near-real time data of wind and currents for improving lake effect weather forecasting. In her earlier work as a Research Scientist at the Climate Impacts Research Center in Abisko, Sweden, Charlotte focused on issues of carbon and nutrient dynamics in streams and lakes of sub-arctic watersheds affected by permafrost loss, elucidating important pathways for carbon redistribution. During her PostDoc, Charlotte worked on several projects including: defining the sources and characteristics of ground ice in the NWT, Canada, as a proxy for Martian structures, and evaluating the impact of hydroelectric dam construction on the greenhouse gas budgets of Boreal landscapes. Much of Charlotte's work has focused on defining the impact of climate and land use change on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems by looking at terrestrial-aquatic linkages through carbon, nutrients and metabolic activities, and by elucidating the role of hydrology as a facilitator. Charlotte currently holds an adjunct Research Scientist position in Limnology at CIRES, University of Colorado.
