A tale of two coasts: tidal marsh persistence with changing climate and sea-level rise (Internship)

Tidal wetlands are an important management concern because of their ability to attenuate storm surges, sequester carbon, improve water quality, and provide habitat for tidal marsh-dependent species.  The overall goal of this project is to improve our understanding of the combined effects of inundation, due to sea-level rise and storm surges, and other climate factor on tidal marsh physical and...

U.S. Highway 50, California - Current Landslide Status

Status as of April 3, 2018

 

General:

This slide moves in response to elevated ground-water pore pressures caused by infiltration from rainfall or melting snow. It typically moves during a wet winter and spring and is dormant during dry times. Continued downslope movement of this slide will likely occur in future wet seasons.
