Today the American Geophysical Union published an article (link here) describing the GOM-SCHEMA study. The article was coupled with a fantastic video that provides a comprehensive overview of the study. AGU interviewed the study’s Co-PI’s, HamdanLab’s Dr. Leila Hamdan and BOEM’s Dr. Melanie Damour (also narrators the video), as well as Dr. Jennifer Salerno of HamdanLab. Dr. Hamdan and Dr. Salerno are in New Orleans at the moment presenting this study at the 2016 Ocean Sciences Meeting. The meeting was co-organized by the publishers themselves, the American Geophysical Union, and also by the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography and The Oceanography Society. We are all very excited to see interest in the study and the study itself grow.
We’ve made it into the Washington Post, Times Picayune, Science News, Greenwire, the local NPR station, and a few other media sources. We are beyond ecstatic to get Mason research out there.
We would also like to extend a warm welcome to new friends of the site!
