Northern Gulf of Mexico shelfwide hypoxia cruise

Today I leave on my first cruise as a new faculty at LSU. I’m joining Nancy Rabalais and collaborators of hers from the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON), as well as a graduate student from Olivia Mason‘s lab at Florida State University (@OUMasonLab) to participate on this year’s shelfwide hypoxia investigation in the “dead zone” of the Northern Gulf of Mexico. Nancy and her colleagues have been studying this phenomenon for almost 30 years. I’ll post updates as we go (and hopefully add to the rest of this new site).
