Dr. Kathleen Marsaglia recently sailed as a shipboard scientist on Integrated Ocean Drilling Program Expedition 317 off the Canterbury Margin of South Island, New Zealand. This two-month scientific cruise set several records for deep ocean drilling: deepest hole continuously cored, shallowest water depth, and deepest microbial sample from a hole. A preliminary report of their exciting findings can be found at: http://publications.iodp.org/preliminary_report/317/ She has several graduate students lined up to study the relationships among the distinct seismic stratigraphic sequences drilled on this margin, sand provenance and cementation.
Dr. Marsaglia also received the CSUN Outstanding Faculty Award for 2009-2010.
