Samira Daneshgar Asl, O'Brien Fellow for 2015

Samira Daneshgar Asl was named the O'Brien Fellow for 2015. She was recognized for academic excellence and for her research combining physical oceanography with remote sensing to investigate oil in the ocean. She recently published a paper on chronic oil releases in the coastal Gulf of Mexico and hopes to complete a dissertation that considers ocean transport of oil released from natural seeps and for the Deepwater Horizon. Samira came to FSU in 2011 to pursue studies in oceanography.

Arctic GeoTraces Study

This multinational, multi-icebreaker field effort will cover a large region of the Arctic Ocean and provide pan-Arctic data. It is unprecedented in regional scope and scientific breadth and will contribute to understanding of processes affecting Arctic Ocean ecosystems.

EOAS Biological Oceanography graduate student Caroline Johansen laughs when her family tells others that her research involves counting bubbles. But the bubbles she studies come from seeps at the bottom of the Gulf and contain naturally-occurring hydrocarbons that are an important part of the deep-sea ecosystem.
