Welcome

We are an international research collaborative working to quantify the flux of nutrient-rich materials from coastal watersheds to nearshore marine ecosystems.

We address information gaps, develop regional collaborations, and synthesize knowledge regarding water, carbon, and nutrient fluxes in a landscape where intense transformations and rapid transfers between terrestrial and freshwater environments control the delivery of these materials to the ocean.

We are supported in part by the US National Science Foundation award #1557186.

Ad hoc instrumentation methods in ecological studies produce highly biased temperature measurements

In any region-spanning collaborative effort, using (as-much-as-possible) unbiased methods is of course desirable. Check out the recent paper by Terando et al. It’s open access, available here: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ece3.3499/epdf They experimentally compared 11 different sensor brand and shield combinations to weather station data, and found that quite a few methods had a positive bias. It’s not … Continue reading Ad hoc instrumentation methods in ecological studies produce highly biased temperature measurements

Workshop 2: Marine-terrestrial Interactions in the Coastal Temperate Rainforest Domain

Applications are now closed. During this second workshop we will bring together a select group of oceanographers, biogeochemists, biologists, modellers and others interested in processes occurring at the land-sea interface in temperate regions. Although the workshop will focus heavily on the Pacific Coast, our findings are expected to have applications to temperate coastal rainforest domains … Continue reading Workshop 2: Marine-terrestrial Interactions in the Coastal Temperate Rainforest Domain
