Welcome to the MOGEL website!
We are located at Old Dominion University. Under the direction of Professor Rodger Harvey, our group focuses on organic geochemistry and biogeochemistry of aquatic environments. We have a diverse group of research projects ranging from the Chesapeake Bay to the Arctic Ocean.
Keep an eye out for "Evaluation of electrophoretic protein extraction and database-driven protein identification from marine sediments" in an upcoming issue of Limnology and Oceanography Methods! It is a paper detailing Eli and Jessica's work with the extraction of protein from marine sediments.
Also newly published, "Physical and biochemical properties of the euphausiids Thysanoessa inermis, Thysanoessa raschii, and Thysanoessa longipes in the eastern Bering Sea" in Deep Sea Research II, a paper detailing Rodger and Rachel's work with krill.
In February 2012, Rodger, Karen, and Rachel attended the Ocean Sciences meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah to present research findings from the Chukchi Monitoring in a Drilling Area (COMIDA) Project, the Bering Sea Ecosystem Study, and work on the extraction of proteins from sediments.
