Hello everyone! My name is Nick Lavoie, and I just started as a graduate student here in the P-Mag Lab at OSU. After an exciting week of getting settled into my apartment, I joined graduate students, REU students, our P.I., and P-Mag alumni alike as we set sail on the R/V Oceanus off the Oregon Coast. Despite a pretty brutal first day in high seas, we got several great days of coring in, and it will be exciting to see what we find as we now process the cores back at the lab in Corvallis. We’ll be sure to keep this blog updated with our progress, but for now here’s a video of some dolphins celebrating with us following our final day of coring.
