A study led by Geoffrey Johnson, doctoral student in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies Program was recently featured in Around the O. Check out the article here: https://around.uoregon.edu/content/south-sloughs-oxygen-poor-water-may-be-due-climate-change
Co-authors on the study, which was published in the journal Estuaries and Coasts, were David Sutherland and Josh Roering, professors in the Department of Earth Sciences; Nathan Mathabane, a former graduate student in Roering’s lab; and Daniel Gavin, a professor in the Department of Geography.
“The study, Johnson said, potentially sets a starting point for exploring the historical record of estuaries to the north in the Pacific Northwest, many of which have been more prone to disruptions generated by hypoxia than the more southern estuaries.”
