Inhibitor of Good Planning? The Influence of CEQA Litigation on the San Diego Region

submitted by: MattGoodman
Outlines a research strategy to examine the positive impact of CEQA litigation by San Diego region advocacy groups in providing the region with more robust, environmentally friendly projects. This proposal focuses on four essential areas in which CEQA litigation is of the utmost importance to protect the region’s environment. Environmental sustainability is crucial to future generations of humans and the region’s wildlife. This raises fundamental problems: Land use development is...

In episode 63 of MicrobeWorld Video, Dr. Stan Maloy talks with Forest Rohwer Ph.D., Professor of Biology, San Diego State University, about his research on the microbes of the ocean, coral reefs and the human lung. This episode was filmed at the American Association for the Advancement of Science Meeting in Vancouver, Canada on February 18th, 2012. Viruses make up a large portion of the world's oceans, with over ten million per milliliter of seawater. Rohwer's interest in better...

Science Nation - Purple Marsh Crabs

submitted by: nsf
If you take a quick glance at the marsh next to Saquatucket Harbor in Harwich Port, Massachusetts, you will notice right away that some of the grass is missing. The cordgrass there, and all around Cape Cod, has been slowly disappearing for decades. "The cordgrass that's being destroyed here is the foundation species that builds salt marshes," explains marine ecologist Mark Bertness of Brown University. With support from the National Science Foundation, Bertness studies this critical...

Science Nation - Marshes and Sea Level Rise

submitted by: nsf
With support from the National Science Foundation, Villanova University marine scientist Nathaniel Weston studies how both land use and climate change can impact habitat in tidal marshes, including how rising sea levels may affect microbes and other plants and animals. Rising sea levels can actually cause marshes to grow in very different ways. His experiments are already simulating different amounts of sea level rise in several tidal creeks in the Delaware River estuary. He studies how...
