Recent News - stories from the last 14 days.
On November 18–20, 2015, scientists from St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (SPCMSC) Caitlin Reynolds (Geologist) and Julie Richey (Research Geologist) are deploying a new sediment trap in the northern Gulf of Mexico for an ongoing paleoclimate proxy calibration study. The trap has been collecting samples and data since January 2008 and this will be the 17th deployment. In addition to deploying the sediment trap and collecting water samples, the group will be participating in an outreach activity with a Florida and South Carolina elementary school class. Collaborators from University of Texas at Austin and University of South Carolina will be on board the R/V Point Sur with USGS scientists.
