UC Ship Funds Proposal awarded
In collaboration with the Wilbanks and Raven labs at UCSB, Dr. Colleen Durkin at Moss Landing Marine Labs, and Claudia Benitez-Nelson of U. South Carolina we were awarded ship time aboard the UCSD/SIO operated UNOLS research vessel Sally Ride. We will be testing out some new tools for examining the microbiology and geochemistry of sinking particles in the low-oxygen waters of Santa Barbara Basin. We'll also be involving some lucky UCSB undergrads!
