Geosciences chair Bess Ward, her research group, and other scientists on board the research vessel Nathaniel B. Palmer cast their final farewell blog. The research cruise was on a 5-week mission to measure various aspects of the nitrogen cycle off the coasts of Peru and Chile. Some crew members have unprecedentedly been able to remotely blog from the ship. They expected it to take over a year to compile and analyze all the data collected.
Members of the Ward lab group participated in a month-long research cruise in Spring 2012 in the Eastern Tropical North Pacific (ETNP) as part their ongoing project entitled “Control of Denitrification and Anammox in the Oxygen Deficient Waters of the Eastern Tropical North and South Pacific.
