AGU Fall Meeting 2023

Mari Figueroa, graduate student in the MLML Physical Oceanography lab, presented her research on internal tides in Monterey Submarine Canyon at the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco. Mari’s research uses data from the MLML seawater intake monitoring system, a shore-based observation station supported by CeNCOOS. Mari’s attendance at AGU was supported by a student travel award from the CSU Council on Ocean Affairs, Science and Technology (COAST). Mari was also the recipient of a 2023 COAST Dr. Kenneth H. Coale Graduate Scholar Award.
