LSU scientist receives environmental award
An LSU scientist has received the Wetland Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Association for Ecology.
The Advocate reports the award was presented to Eugene Turner during the organization's International Wetland Conference held in Orlando, Fla., in June.
Turner is a distinguished research master and holds the Shell Endowed Chair in Oceanography and Wetland Studies at LSU.
His work has focused on low oxygen levels in Louisiana coastal areas, a phenomenon known as the "dead zone."
