How does the White lab do conferences, you ask? Hardcore!
Upon arrival in Mobile, AL Saturday morning, we headed off for a day of sampling to kick off the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill & Ecosystem Science conference. We sampled from four sites in Alabama and Florida to collect sand patties to study oil weathering and biological analysis.
Early Sunday morning, before the conference start time (1pm), we traveled to Mississippi to collect rock scrapings!
Upon arrival to the conference, I attended a 4-hour long panel on dispersants and a QA/QC panel to ensure that our lab is complying with standard procuedures. Max, Pat, Helen, Rach and I will all present posters tomorrow evening!
