2 Mar 2016 – Ocean Sciences!

Last week, the lab ventured to the 2016 Ocean Sciences meeting in New Orleans, LA. Sorush presented a poster on his work related to nearshore generation of internal waves and it was a great success. Brock chaired a session on marine ecosystem dynamics with Kelly Benoit-Bird (Oregon State), Adam Greer (Southern Miss), Steve Litvin (Stanford University), and Charlie Stock (NOAA-GFDL). The session was also a great success with excellent cross-cutting talks by Bruce Menge (Oregon State),
