Kyle Arndt


Kyle is working on his PhD with Dr. Donatella Zona researching the controls of methane emissions in the Arctic. He was first exposed to the Arctic working as a technician at The University of Vermont (UVM) where he earned his B.Sc. in 2014. Projects at UVM included the Arctic Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) as well as Scaling consumsers and lotic ecosystem rates (SCALER) where he focused on nutrient dynamics and cycling in Arctic stream systems. After some years working in the private sector he returned to school to once again work in the Arctic. Kyle is particularly interested in the effect of the non-growing season on methane emissions as well as changing vegetation communities. He uses techniques of remote sensing and eddy co variance to conduct his work.
