Congratulations to Earth Sciences assistant professor Audrey Sawyer whose first-authored paper in Science was published on August 4, 2016! Her study, written with co-authors Cédric David and Jay Famiglietti at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, shows regions of the United States coastline where submarine groundwater discharge occurs making the coastal ocean likely to suffer effects from dissolved constituents in the groundwater.

Those interested in learning more about this topic are encouraged to check out the OSU news story on the subject as well as the complete article in Science and a Science podcast featuring Audrey.
