Public Exhibit on the Oxygen Minimum Zone in the Santa Monica Basin

Within the framework of our USC Sea Grant project (PIs: William Berelson, USC & Tina Treude, UCLA) about the potential spreading of the Oxygen Minimum Zone (OMZ) in the Santa Monica Basin, we are currently presenting an exhibit hosted by the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium and Heal the Bay.

If you are in the area, come by and visit. The exhibit lasts from August through September, potentially extending into October 2017. You can also watch our time-lapse video on the deoxygenation of a sediment core in the lab. The video was prepared by Sydnie Lemieux, UCLA a part of her master thesis.
