CMOP's most read News Stories of 2013

Jeff Schilling on field assignmentThis selfie was taken while I was on an assignment in Astoria to cover the deployment of the Environmental Sample Processor. The high winds and cold rain were challenging or as the field team reminded me, just another typical day of work at the estuary. 2013 was a tremendous year for CMOP research and education. From performing the first adaptive sampling, to the story of robotic vehicles performing research in an unlikely place, here 's what you may have missed last year.

  1. Visiting Scholar Returns to United Arab Emirates
    Nabil Abdel Jabbar, a professor of chemical engineering at American University of Sharjah, spent his sabbatical at CMOP to better understand the computational models and observation network.
  2. Underwater Robotics Succeed In Unlikely Place
    CMOP puts autonomous underwater vehicles to work in a challenging environment to study how climate change and human stresses affect estuaries and nearby coastal waters.
  3. CMOP Advances Sampling Strategies of Microbial Communities in Coastal Ecosystems
    CMOP collects autonomous adaptive samples from microbial communities by integrating an Environmental Sample Processor with the SATURN Observation Network.
  4. CMOP Research to Provide Insight into Biogeochemical Exchange Between Bays and Estuary
    Scientists study the biogeochemical exchange between three bays and the Columbia River estuary to gain scientific insight of how metabolic processes affect the overall health of the estuarine ecosystem.
  5. Scholarship Enables Graduate Student to Study New Pathways of Carbon Flow Through Aquatic Food Webs
    A scholarship supports Michelle Maier’s research into describing how environmental variables influence microscopic biological communities in river ecosystems.
