Susan Snyder receives the 2017 Admiral James Watkins award

ST. PETERSBURG, FL - Congratulations to Susan Snyder, CMS Ph.D. student for receiving the 2017 Admiral James Watkins best student paper at the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Conference, last week in New Orleans.  Susan’s talk was titled:  “Forming a Gulf-Wide Dataset of PAH Exposure and Accumulation in Benthic-Dependent Teleosts”. Also, congratulations to all CMS students, researchers and faculty who participated in, and presented talks and posters at the conference.

Developing the Capacity to Generate Coastal and Shallow‐Water Basemaps for Tropical Island Nations and Territories of the Pacific

ST. PETERSBURG, FL - With support from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the University of South Florida College of Marine Science, through Dr. Frank Muller-Karger, has partnered with researchers at the University of Fiji to map coral reefs at two study sites in Fiji using satellite imagery, field surveys, and local knowledge from the native Fijian villagers who have used the resources of these habitats for centuries. In addition to creating high-resolution benthic habitat maps, the purpose of this project is to train Fijian researchers to conduct reef-monitoring research and build their capacity to carry out long-term habitat conservation goals. During the summer of 2016, USF Ph.D. candidate Matt McCarthy traveled to Fiji for 4 weeks to train Fijian personnel in reef-assessment field work and satellite-imagery mapping. The on-going project should establish a baseline from which future monitoring may be done to evaluate changes in Fijian reefs, and help guide management of these vital resources.

Two CMS researchers to participate on IODP Expedition 374 to the Ross Sea, Antarctica

ST. PETERSBURG, FL - CMS Ph.D student Imogen Browne and CMS Assistant Professor Amelia Shevenell have been selected to sail on International Ocean Discovery Program Expedition 374 to the Ross Sea, Antarctica in early 2018. The two month expedition will drill sites in the Ross Sea that will enable a better understanding of the evolution of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet over the last 20 million years. Reconstructing ice sheet response during past warm climates is critical for modeling and predicting future ice sheet response and global sea level rise. This expedition was first proposed by Shevenell and her collaborators in 2012, following a workshop at USF CMS. Both Browne and Shevenell will sail as two of the ten Americans in the 35 member international science party.

The two month expedition aboard the D/V Joides Resolution, will leave from Wellington, New Zealand in January of 2018. Browne will sail as a Physical Properties specialist and Shevenell will lead a team of eight Sedimentologists. Post cruise, the two will conduct geochemical analyses of the recovered sediments to understand the role of ocean temperatures in West Antarctic Ice Sheet evolution

Graduate Student Symposium

ST. PETERSBURG, FL - The annual Graduate Student Symposium is tomorrow January 13, 2017, starting in the MSL Conference Room. Come see the next generation of marine scientists present their exciting research endeavors.

The symposium will start at 9:15 am and conclude with awards and raffle prizes during TGIF at 4:30 pm. The final schedule is attached for your convenience. For every feedback form an audience member fills out for a presentation, he or she will receive one raffle ticket in the raffle drawing. So, even if you're not presenting, if you attend the entire symposium you could have up to 23 chances to win! We'll send your feedback back to the participants anonymously after the symposium so that they can try to improve their presentation skills.

Also, if you have any suggestions for next year's symposium after you've attended, a separate evaluation form can be filled out by following this link: http://bit.ly/2j5VajR

Breakfast and lunch will also be provided from Publix, Kahwa Coffee, and The Campus Grind. Although we planned on a large number of people, please keep in mind that the food is first come, first serve.

Additionally, the final abstract booklet is attached, so feel free to browse through the presentation subjects ahead time.

Hope to sea you all there!
