Hi, my name is Dan Snow, and I'm a research associate professor in the School of Natural Resources, and the director of laboratory services of the UNL Water Sciences Laboratory. I have been at UNL since 1990. I use analytical chemistry to help understand how water becomes contaminated and what we can do to prevent it. A good part of my work in the Water Sciences Laboratory involves creating analytical methods for new or "emerging" environmental contaminants like steroids, pharmaceuticals, algal toxins, explosives and pesticides. I also help develop methods to measure and use stable isotopes as tracers to study environmental problems and processes.

Dan Snow and undergraduate student Megan Larsen discuss methods for analysis of algal toxins in lake water.

Mass spectrometry is an incredibly powerful tool to use in studying the occurrence and environmental fate of chemicals, and their potential for affecting organisms and people. Students and staff I supervise use mass spectrometers to help other scientists and engineers find out exactly what chemicals are in water and other materials. I work with biologists - studying endocrine disruption in fish in Nebraska rivers - to find out what kinds and concentrations of steroid hormones and pesticides may be associated with these effects. I also work with scientists and engineers to find out what kinds and concentrations of steroid hormones and pharmaceuticals may be found in livestock and municipal waste, and whether or not these chemicals can get into water.
