A Critical Assessment of Recent Soil Dating Methods in Coastal Wetlands (Internship Opportunity)

Are you interested in coastal wetlands and how they form in the landscape? In this internship you will learn about wetland formation and how carbon accumulates in wetland soils over time. In addition, you will learn to learn how to critically evaluate soil dating methods that are currently being used to report carbon accumulation to the US EPA and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change...

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...

Ecologically-Driven Exposure Pathways Science Team

Contaminant and pathogen exposure alone will not necessarily result in adverse health outcomes in animals or humans. There are numerous ecological and physiological pathways and processes that can alter the toxicity of environmental contaminants. U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Scientists in the Ecological Pathways Team of the USGS Environmental Health Mission Area work to identify the...
