Looking for new lab mates
I’m looking for new graduate students to join the Rodriguez Lab. If you are interested in coastal science including sedimentology, geomorphology, and/or ecology look through this website to see if what we do is compatible with your interests. We can also team up with other faculty at UNC to provide additional expertise to your project.

Last week Hurricane Dorian impacted North Carolina. In collaboration with the MARS Lab at Duke University, including Justin Ridge, we examined how the storm affected the morphology of Bird Shoal. Before the storm came by, we deployed a camera trap … Continue reading
I’ve been working with Molly Bost to compare oyster reef growth and composition among tidal and landscape settings. Our data set is composed of 12 natural reefs and this week we sampled the first oyster to colonize each reef to … Continue reading
This post is to help the IE 2018 class prepare for their first exam. It’s been a tough semester filled with large storms, evacuations, and modifications. I thought this information would be helpful because when classes are on a field … Continue reading
We have a project looking at salt-marsh trangression and some of our site locations are composed of wide fringing salt marsh; difficult to access. Our new favorite coring device is the backpack vibracorer. I don’t think we could have collected … Continue reading
The past two days we have been field tripping with Chuck Nittrouer’s class from the University of Washington. They are a great group of students, post-docs and visiting professors all smart, personable, and fun to be around. Emily Eidam, Nittrouer … Continue reading
It’s been a fun spring semester. Brent McKee and I have been leading two seminar classes at Chapel Hill. One looks at sediment accretion in North American estuaries across the Anthropocene and the other is more broad, titled Frontiers in … Continue reading
We don’t have an official Coastal Geology Club at IMS, but during our open house in Oct. 2017 there was a lot of interest in starting one. People from all over eastern Morehead City were enthusiastic about making ID cards and … Continue reading
Methods, methods, methods was the key focus this summer for my project. My project aims to understand how different salt marsh – upland morphologies affect salt marsh transgression (landward movement) with physical factors like increasing rates sea-level rise and frequency … Continue reading
Welcome Carson Miller, Molly Bost and Jessie Straub. The Rodriguez Lab is not new to Carson and Molly, but Jessie comes from Coastal Carolina University, and it took her about 10 minutes to settle in and feel like a lab mate. … Continue reading
Oyster reefs are often the only natural hard substrate in estuaries and are even labeled “oyster rock” on many old nautical charts. Oyster reefs have the potential to grow extremely rapidly (10 cm/year); in comparison, coral-reef growth, is measured in mm/year. … Continue reading
