Department of Earth and Environment Professors Sergio Fagherazzi and Curtis Woodcock announced today that they have been awarded a new grant by the Office of Naval Research.

With this new grant, Dr. Fagherazzi and Dr. Woodcock will focus their attentions on the Mekong Delta in Vietnam. The Mekong Delta is well known for the size of fish, particular catfish, that grow in its waters; however, Dr. Fagherazzi and Dr. Woodcock will be studying the delta’s vegetation.¬†Fagherazzi explains that “the goal of the project is ‘to determine the feedbacks between mangrove vegetation and tidal hydrodynamics in tropical deltas with remote sensing data.'”

The Office of Naval Research (ONR) is an executive branch within the Department of Defense. To learn more about ONR visit their website.
