Dr. Angelicque White, an NCCOS-sponsored researcher,received the 2016 Yentsch-Schindler Early Career Award for her groundbreaking, multidisciplinary research.
The award, given by the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), honors an early-career scientist for outstanding and balanced contributions to research, science training, and broader societal issues likeresource management, conservation, policy, and public education. Her dedicated efforts improve our understanding of biological and physical relationships in the ocean, develop and expand experiential learning opportunities for students, and promote underrepresented groups and engagement of the public in science issues.
Dr. White is a researcher with the NCCOS-sponsored Monitoring Oregon Coastal Harmful Algae (MOCHA) project. MOCHA, Oregon's first coastal HAB monitoring and research program funded by NCCOS MERHAB, collected the first extensive time-series database of the Oregon coast's biological, chemical, and physical variables in both the surf zone and offshore habitat over a variety of sampling scales. MOCHA provided the scientific data necessary to describe HAB occurrences in Oregon and the underlying mechanisms to inform future HAB monitoring.
