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.

Longest running successional plot network in the world: All photos

The longest running ecological plot network in the world looking at succession (1916-present) is in Glacier Bay, and now all available photographs have been compiled.  They show a plant community evolving, from mostly bare rock to a variety of current states – spruce, alder, and willow, very different endpoints and something apparently unique to this portion … Continue reading Longest running successional plot network in the world: All photos

New map of yellow-cedar decline published

A new map of both the range and decline of yellow-cedar has been published in Global Change Biology with help from researchers in Alaska, BC, and Washington.  The high resolution range map stretches from northern California to southcentral Alaska, from sea level in the north to treeline in the south.  The decline, now quantified at … Continue reading New map of yellow-cedar decline published
