Nate Abramson is one of the specialists who are studying the critical zone of the Catalinas, the space from the aquifer to the treetops where the landscape we depend on evolves. He and others are studying precisely how the range just north of Tucson formed and how it made what lies below.
Nate Abramson is the research tech for the Critical Zone Observatory, which is measuring the movement of water, chemical composition, rainfall and other items on several slopes in the Santa Catalina Mountains. Here he collects data from one of the automated water samplers.
It all starts with the rock.
Nate Abramson pumps water into a sample container in the Catalinas. It's part of a regular task he performs to monitor water quality, rainfall and more in the Critical Zone Observatory.
