Gulf of Mexico Hypoxia Research Cruise

Date: 
Monday, August 15, 2011 to Monday, August 22, 2011

Between August 15 and 22, 2011, R.C. Mickey and Brian Quigley from Coastal Carolina University will be on a hypoxia research cruise in the Northern Gulf of Mexico. This project was funded by NOAA to study coastal processes controlling the formation of hypoxic water in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Collaborators include several geochemists and oceanographers from Texas A&M University at College Station and Galveston. R.C. and Brian will use Gust Erosion Chambers to measure sediment suspension, which plays a key role in water column-sea bed interaction.
