The NGA LTER program is thrilled to have two student poster award winners at the 2023 Alaska Marine Science Symposium! Megan Brauner, UAF PhD student, and Emily Stidham, UAF MS Student, were both awarded for their presentations. Megan presented her poster Co-occurrence networks of marine microbes in the Northern Gulf of Alaska, while Emily presented Two decades of observations on pelagic tunicates and pelagic snails in the Northern Gulf of Alaska (NGA). We are proud of all of our students and their contributions. They are truly inspiring, and we are lucky to have them.
