Oregon CoringProfessor Jim Wright and members of his research group went to a core repository in Oregon to split, scan, and describe the cores that they collected along the Patagonian margin, offshore Argentina. This project is a continuation of their successful expedition to the southern Argentine margin in 2019. Rutgers personnel who joined Professor Wright include graduate students, Ronan Keating, Maya Stefanelli, and Aldiyar Mukhatzhanov as well as a post-doctorate researcher, José Isola. In this project, they worked alongside other colleagues from Texas A&M and international scientists from Argentina. The photo on the left shows a correlation by laying out the cores from one of their transects (left) as well as Holocene deposits to glacial transition that are heavily burrowed (right)! The red layers at the top section of the core indicate oxidized sediments.
