GCE Project Announcements

11/24/2015 – Award

The Wetlands Lab at Indiana University was awarded a three year grant from the  National Science Foundation. The $665,000 award, entitled "Collaborative Research: Human alterations of sediment delivery to the coast – Legacies of land use, coastal wetland accretion, and future vulnerability to sea level" brings together researchers from Villanova University, Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of South Carolina to investigate the stability and persistence of tidal marshes along the U.S. east coast from Massachusetts to Georgia. The Wetlands Lab will oversee collection of data from the Altamaha, Edisto (SC) and Cape Fear (NC) Rivers. For more information, contact Chris Craft at ccraft@indiana.edu.

11/06/2015 – Outreach News

The November 2, 2015 issue of Columns, the online newspaper for the University of Georgia community, featured an article on the donation of Merryl Alber's children's book "And the Tide Comes In" to about 400 Georgia public libraries.

The article, titled "Children’s book by marine science professor donated to public libraries" by Jessica Luton, is available online here: http://columns.uga.edu/news/article/childrens-book-by-marine-science-professor-donated-to-public-libraries/

10/28/2015 – Monitoring Program

The fall monitoring for 2015 went very well, with support from the GCE technicians, members of the Pennings and Silliman labs, and a mysterious masked field assistant. We collected data on disturbance, plants, marine invertebrates and recruitment of marine invertebrates. Over the coming months, the GCE technicians will process samples of soil (for salinity) and invertebrates (for size-frequency distributions) to supplement the data collected already.

09/19/2015 – Announcement

A crew from PBS NewsHour visited UGAMI this past August as part of a story about coastal climate change. On the first day we went to the SALTEx site (with Chris Craft, Ellen Herbert, and Dontrece Smith), then up-river to the tidal freshwater site at GCE 11, and finally to UGAMI where they interviewed Fan Li about her mesocosm experiment. On day 2 I showed them around UGAMI and then took them out the flux tower (with Chuck Hopkinson and Jacob Shalack). The story and accompanying video are currently featured on the PBS website http://www.pbs.org/newshour/updates/coastal-ecologists-construct-time-machine-sea-level-rise/.
