Dubravko Justic, Texaco Distinguished Professor in the LSU’s Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences, or DOCS, and Lixia Wang, Research Associate IV in DOCS, recently co-authored a study suggesting that measuring the volume rather than the area of the Gulf of Mexico’s “Dead Zone,” is more appropriate for monitoring its effects on marine organisms.

Coastal Environmental Sciences undergraduate Nadia Romero is one of 16 LSU undergraduates to receive the LSU Discover Undergraduate Research Grant this spring. Romero will be using her grant to perform a study to determine the productivity and growth of black mangrove trees, Avicennia germinans, in Port Fourchon, Louisian a, where this type of wetland is expanding due to a historical increase in air temperature. 
In the very same semester that LSU alumna Sarah Margolis graduated from the College of the Coast & Environment, or CC&E, she began working in NOAA Fisheries’ Office of Science and Technology with a prestigious Knauss Fellowship. Just a short distance away from Washington D.C., Margolis works at the Silver Spring, Maryland headquarters as the advanced sampling technology coordinator.
