Trish Beddows, Beverly Goodman, Wes Patterson and Dan Leonard work together to open up one of the first cores pulled from the sediments near Vista Alegre, while Dominique Rissolo looks on. In the months following the project, Trish and Beverly will analyze samples from the cores to look back at the site’s prior ecology, water chemistry and species abundance among other variables.
