A long-term study of invertebrates in SF Bay demonstrates how extreme events and shifts in climate regimes alter ecological comminutions. Winter salinity has a dramatic effect on which invertebrates are present during the following summer. Changes may occur gradually as salinity changes, but only up to a point. Once a critical threshold is passed, the community is entirely replaced.
The Architecture at Zero competition challenge is to create a zero net energy bayside community education and visitor’s center, in support of the mission of the Estuary & Ocean Science (EOS) Center to connect science, society and the sea for a healthy planet. The EOS Center is located on San Francisco State University’s Romberg Tiburon Campus, 53 acres of bayside property in Tiburon, California.
The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) Teacher and Researcher (STAR) program, led by Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, is a nine-week paid summer research experience program for aspiring K-12 STEM teachers. STAR aims to produce excellent K-12 STEM teachers by providing aspiring teachers with opportunities to do authentic research while helping them translate their research experience into classroom practice. STAR supports the continued development of our Teacher-Researcher Fellows with ongoing professional development and networking opportunities.
Environmental work by a Tiburon-based researcher in the shallows of San Rafael Bay to protect the shorelines has been documented in a new book. The book, “Living Shorelines: The Science and Management of Nature-Based Coastal Protection,” ... is the first to compile, synthesize and interpret the science and practice of nature-based shoreline protection, according to the state Coastal Conservancy.
