02/01/2016 – Conference News

The College of Coastal Georgia (CCGA), which is located in Brunswick, held its first "Coastal Ecology Symposium" this past Friday (1/29). I was the keynote speaker for the event and gave a talk titled "The Georgia Coastal Ecosystems Long Term Ecological Research Project: Marsh Response to Long-term Change". Dontrece Smith presented a poster on the SALTEx project, and Jacob Shalack had a poster on UGAMI. Tim Montgomery and Nicole DeSha (a CCGA student who works part-time helping with the SALTEx project) were there as well, as was Ashby Nix Worley (our former SALTEx technician who now works for the Satilla Riverkeeper). The symposium was well attended, with a nice mix of students, agency personnel, NGOs, and community members. There was also a write-up in the Brunswick News: http://www.thebrunswicknews.com/news/local_news/college-of-coastal-georgia-hosts-inaugural-ecological-theme-symposium/article_aeb32b17-f7b1-5090-8ad9-3623acbecf8e.html.

As many of you know, the GCE field crew is often bouncing from project to project and always rushing to complete the work.  The crew is often so focused on the tasks at hand that they don't really spend as much time as they should enjoying the vast beautiful landscape all around them.  However, while out cleaning sondes last week, Tim decided to take a few moments (about 5 hours), to really enjoy nature.  He decided that a sandbar in the middle of Sapelo Sound would be a great place to enjoy the setting sun.  He bravely endured sharply dropping temperatures and complete darkness on a moonless night, just to take in the sheer beauty of the world around him.  Good for you Tim!

This past weekend John Schalles and the GCE technicians got the new bentho torch up and running. The instrument estimates the abundance (mass/area) of three classes of microalgae (green, diatoms, cyanobacteria) in sediment samples. Readings are fast (less than one minute each) and non-destructive. In addition, the instrument logs time and location with an internal GPS.
