Wednesday, March 14, 2018

Kerri Seger, a postdoctoral researcher in the School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering (SMSOE) and the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping, has been awarded a Fulbright U.S. Scholar grant to conduct research in Colombia this summer. There, she will conduct the first passive acoustic monitoring study in a humpback whale breeding ground that is also a marine sanctuary. The study will provide benchmark noise pollution data prior to the scheduled building of an international port nearby.
