Photo of a metal-rich acid-mine-drainage from a mine near Lake Fork Creek, Colo.

The research of one SEES Fellow, Sarah Jane White of Harvard's School of Public Health, examines metal-rich acid mine drainage coming from a mine adit near Lake Fork Creek, Colo. For emerging metal contaminants like indium, gallium, germanium, and tellurium, releases from mining and smelting processes are thought to be the largest releases of these metals to the environment.
