My sister, the scientist

My sister, Sarah, works for NOAA and is currently in the Gulf of Mexico on a research cruise to study the effects of the oil spill. They will be taking samples that she will likely be studying over the next several months. She is actually leading the plankton sampling! Here is a video from the Miami Herald about the cruise. Sarah is in the purple shirt around 35 seconds in to the clip!

I'm so glad to see this research being done. I have been worried about the Gulf waters with all the oil and disbursements in the water.
