Alumnus, Ryan Manzer of our Physical Oceanography Lab, Publishes Work From His Thesis

One of the most special moments for MLML alumni is to have their thesis work published. Ryan Manzer, alumnus to the Physical Oceanography lab, is now one of those people; thanks to his recent publication, Physical factors influencing phytoplankton abundance in southern Monterey Bay in the journal of Continental Shelf Research. His co-authors consist of MLML's physical oceanography faculty, Dr. Tom Connolly & Dr. G. Jason Smith and former member, Dr. Erika McPhee-Shaw. Their research correlated physical factors such as inner shelf water temperature and upwelling relaxation events, to phytoplankton biomass.
