Concorde scientific consortium from USM completes ocean research

HATTIESBURG, Miss - 'Concorde' a GoMRI-funded scientific consortium based out of USM completed a large-scale research mission.

The Fall campaign included scientists and students from six universities.

The goal was to collect data to determine how freshwater outflow from rivers moves through and mixes with salty water in the Northern Gulf when both are at their lowest volumes.

This research study will help scientists understand how the interaction with incoming freshwater in the nearshore impacts microscopic marine life.
