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.

Linking the land and sea on the British Columbia coast: How dynamic nutrient fluxes from small rainforest watersheds shape cross-system connections. Applications are invited for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship with the Hakai Coastal Initiative at the University of British Columbia. Coastal temperate rainforests of the world are linked to coastal oceans through the riverine flux … Continue reading Hakai Coastal Initiative Postdoctoral Fellow Position

Scientist Exchange Program now accepting applications

The Coastal Rainforest Margins Research Network (CRMRN) is currently accepting applications for the Scientist Exchange Program (SEP). The goals of this exchange program are to facilitate new collaborations between scientists; build new skills in field, laboratory, or statistical techniques; and assist with production of a deliverable product of the collaboration (e.g., manuscripts, data sets, research proposals).
