HARC Researchers Presented at Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation Conference November 5 and 7
HARC Researchers, Stephanie Glenn, Lisa Gonzalez, and Erin Kinney, were accepted to present at the CERF 2013 conference "Toward Resilient Coasts and Estuaries, Science for Sustainable Solutions" November 3-7, 2013 in San Diego, California.
Stephanie Glenn, a Senior Research Scientist of Hydrology and Watersheds at HARC, presented on modeling and data in watershed planning in Double Bayou, a rural watershed of an urban estuary.
Lisa Gonzalez, Vice President of HARC, presented on the long-term status of wetland permit and mitigation activities in the Lower Galveston Bay watershed and bridgning the gap between development and land use permitting decisions of local governments, the federal wetland permitting process, and regional habitat conservation goals.
Erin Kinney, Post Doctoral Research Scientist, presented on a forty year fertilization study in Great Sippewissett Marsh, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The presentation will summarize the changes to sediment microbial processes, including denitrification and nitrogen burial, shifts in dominant vegetation and increases in elevation in response to long-term nitrogen fertilization.
CERF 2013 focused on the following key areas:
- Managing Nutrients in a Changing World
- Responding to Sea Level Rise
- Acidification Impacts on Estuaries
- Anthropogenic Facilitation of Species Invasions
