Multi-platform field resarch campaign in September

The center is performing a multi-platform campaign during September with operations in the Pacific Northwest coastal-offshore region and the Columbia River estuary. This campaign will expand on the work done earlier in the year, and will provide a summer condition contrast to the earlier spring freshet campaign. Tawnya Peterson and Chris Wingard will lead two research vessels on this campaign.
