Research from our own Dr. Gregory O’Mullan was recently featured by SUM: an initiative that collaborates with colleagues throughout CUNY to make important academic work accessible to the public, and The CUNY Graduate Center.

The articles, titled “Do You Kayak or Wade in the Hudson? Study Reveals Sediment Pollution” and “Yes, There’s Icky Stuff in the Hudson. But Don’t Let That Scare You Away” features a study led by Dr. O’Mullan in which he and his team conclude that “shoreline water samples had higher average FIB (fecal indicator bacteria) concentrations than samples collected further shore.” More importantly, the research shows that FIB can thrive within nearshore sediments for extended periods of time, far after any sewage discharge event.

The full study titled “Patterns of sediment-associated fecal indicator bacteria in an urban estuary: Benthic-pelagic coupling and implications for shoreline water activity” was authored by Gregory O’Mullan, Andrew Juhl, Roman Reichert, Erin Schneider, and Natalia Martinez, and was published in the journal Science of The Total Environment on March 15th, 2019.

This article has also been featured by SUM Research on their Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

Professor Gillian Stewart and PhD student Yi Tang’s paper featured as the Editors’ Highlight of Biogeosciences in EOS

March 5th, 2019

Professor Gillian Stewart and her PhD student Yi Tang recently had their paper titled “Radionuclide Data from GEOTRACES Improve Particle Flux Estimates” featured as the Editors’ Highlight for the Biogeosciences section of EOS. In the paper, Dr. Stewart, Yi Tang, and the other authors present their findings of radioisotope data from the U.S. GEOTRACES expedition across the North Atlantic and discuss how this improves the understanding of the elemental budgets in the global ocean. The paper is a major synthesis of GEOTRACES findings over the last 10 years and presents this radioisotope data for the first time ever.

Professor Gregory O’Mullan’s recent study featured by the American Association for the Advancement of Science

 

December 14th, 2018.

Professor Gregory O’Mullan’s recent study examining sewage contamination in the Hudson River estuary was featured by the AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science). The study, titled Patterns of sediment-associated fecal indicator bacteria in an urban estuary: Benthic-pelagic coupling and implications for shoreline water quality, shows that sewage-born fecal bacteria occur in much higher quantities in near-shore sediments of the Hudson River than in the water itself.

The news article can be read here and the original study can be read here.
