Venice Lagoon Project (SIOSED) November 2006

 

Development of faunal and biogeochemical pollution proxies in the Venice Lagoon, Italy (part of an interdisciplinary Scripps team of Co-PIs)  Together with a team of Scripps Institution of Oceanography scientists and Italian scientists (Thetis), in November, 2006 we monitored on-going experiments and sampled seafloor sediments from the Venice Lagoon in order to better understand the ecological and biogeochemical impacts of contaminants within the sediments.  One goal is to develop microfaunal and biogeochemical indicators of contaminants in order to monitor pollution impact and recovery.  Samples were collected by Geologist Dr. Tony Rathburn and undergraduate geology majors Jared Kluesner (2005) and Ellen Brouillette (2006).
