URI Graduate School of Oceanography Student
to Travel to Hawaii to Present
Research in Chemical Oceanography

Narragansett, R.I.--July 31, 2003--URI Graduate School of Oceanography student chemical oceanography student Sarah Weinstein was rewarded handsomely for her hard work and dedication to her doctoral studies in chemical oceanography--she’s going to Hawaii. Weinstein will give an invited talk at the Dissertations Symposium on Chemical Oceanography (DISCO) XVIII to be held at the Outrigger Wailoloa Hotel, Kona Coast, Hawaii, on September 28 to October 4. Her presentation will focus on her investigation of the source, transport, and fate of particulate trace metals in shelf, slope, and open ocean waters.

Sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the Office of Naval Research, and the American Institute of Biological Sciences, the DISCO symposia gives chemical oceanography doctoral candidates an opportunity to discuss their research and interact with others who will be receiving their Ph.D. degrees within a year. Chosen from applicants from around the globe, Weinstein was among only 25 selected to discuss their theses and how their research can benefit the entire oceanographic community and resolve important problems in marine chemistry.

A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Weinstein received a B.S. in chemistry from Bates College in Lewiston, Maine. Under the guidance of her major professor, Dr. S. Bradley Moran, she studies the source and transport of trace metals, including lead in the marine environment. She currently lives in Narragansett.
