COAST News Intro
San Diego State University’s Marine Ecology Biology Student Association recently hosted Marine Science Day for the general public at the university’s off-campus marine research institute. The students used the opportunity to educate attendees about climate change and healthy ecosystems through touch tanks and live demonstrations.
CSU Fullerton researchers have published a study about evidence of abrupt sinking of the wetlands near Seal Beach caused by ancient earthquakes that shook the area at least three times in the past 2,000 years. The team includes Dr. Matthew Kirby, Dr. Brady Rhodes, and his former student, and previous COAST awardee, Robert Leeper.
A team of scientists from San Francisco State University and the California State Coastal Conservancy is featured in a new book, “Living Shorelines: The Science and Management of Nature-Based Coastal Protection.”  The book is the first of its kind to compile, synthesize and interpret the science and practice of nature-based shoreline protection, an emerging approach to adapting to sea level rise and climate change. “Our work in the Bay is a terrific example of Living Shoreline concepts put into practice.” said Katharyn Boyer, Professor of Biology at San Francisco State University’s Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies and the projects’ science lead.
