Virginie Sonnet joins to lab as a visiting M.S. student from the IMBRSea program
Angela Yu wins third place in the World Water Day student research competition with her poster "Assessing spatial and temporal effects of the Detroit River on algal bloom distribution in western Lake Erie"
The whole team presented talks/posters at the Ocean Sciences meeting.
Colleen and Audrey presented an overview of the "GSO dock phytoplankton and optics observatory" at the Coastal Ecology Assessment Innovation and Modeling (C-AIM) Symposium
Colleen will be co-leading the Mentoring Physical Oceanography Women to Increase Retention (MPOWIR) program for the next 4 years with support from the National Science Foundation
In collaboration with NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service Narragansett lab, our lab was selected for funding support from NOAA's Joint Polar Satellite System Proving Ground and Risk for a project titled "Optimization of phytoplankton functional type algorithms for VIIRS ocean color data in the Northeast U.S. Continental Ecosystem"
Our Lake Erie optical data from 2013 and 2014 were submitted to NASA SeaBASS
Colleen gave a webinar "Global Shifts in Phytoplankton Community Size Structure – Connections to Export Flux” to NOAA's Ocean Colour Coordinating Group
Brice gave a poster “Optically estimating CDOM composition across diverse spectral ranges” at the International Ocean Colour Sciences meeting
Angela have a poster “Evaluating the influence of the Detroit River on algal bloom distribution in western Lake Erie” at the International Association for Great Lakes Research conference
Colleen gave a talk at the ASLO meeting “Global shifts in phytoplankton community size structure in response to environmental controls” and a poster on this topic at the International Ocean Colour Sciences meeting
Brice Grunert presented a poster at the Ocean Optics meeting, "Optically estimating CDOM composition across diverse spectral ranges"
