Dr. Nancy Rabalais
Institution(s) / Organization(s):
Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON)
Dr. Rabalais is the Executive Director and a Professor with the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON). Her research interests include biological oceanography of continental shelf ecosystems influenced by large rivers, distribution and dynamics of hypoxic water masses, animal/sediment relationships, pelagic-benthic coupling, estuarine and benthic ecology, environmental effects of habitat alterations, effects of petroleum and chemical industries, eutrophication and effects of hypoxia.

- Collection of Water Column Samples in the Northern Gulf of Mexico Hypoxic Zone and Areas Near the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Site (Bridge Grants (RFP-III), Role: Co-Principal Investigator)
- Impact of Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill on the Louisiana Coastal Environments (Year One Block Grant - The Northern Gulf Institute, Role: Co-Principal Investigator, Task Co-Lead)
- Post Macondo Well Oil Spill Water Quality Sampling - Barataria, Lake Pontchartrain, and Coastal Waters. Part 2 (Year One Block Grant - The Northern Gulf Institute, Role: Co-Principal Investigator)
