Guest speakers #1

I thought today was really interesting and the sort of information I'd have loved to get as an undergraduate. If you disagree, or have suggestions for how we could better direct our guest speakers, then please let me know.

Here is some contact information for Adam and Dan and their projects.

Adam Lambert works as part of the UCSB Riparian Invasive Research Laboratory.

The RIVRlab is lead by Tom Dudley, but many people contribute to its success. Our lab group consists of researchers and students sharing a common interest in biological invasions in riparian ecosystems. Research projects are focused on a watershed perspective and include studies in ecology, geology, biogeochemistry, and policy. If you are a student or postdoc interested in what we do please contact Tom Dudley or Adam Lambert.
They have a number of undergraduates working in their lab and you can see some of the lab members here.

Dan Reed is a Research Biologist in the Marine Science Institute at UCSB who has worked for many years on the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) Mitigation Monitoring Program.

The San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) Mitigation Monitoring Program is based at the Marine Science Institute, University of California Santa Barbara. Long-term monitoring and evaluation of the SONGS mitigation projects is a condition of the coastal development permit issued by the California Coastal Commission (CCC) for the operation of SONGS Units 2 and 3. The Permit requires Southern California Edison (SCE) as majority owner and operating agent of SONGS to design and build mitigation projects that adequately compensate for the adverse effects of the power plant’s once-through seawater cooling system on coastal marine resources. UCSB scientists working under the direction of the Executive Director of the CCC are responsible for designing and implementing monitoring programs aimed at determining the effectiveness of these mitigation projects. Funding for the SONGS Mitigation Monitoring Program is provided by SCE as a requirement of their coastal development permit for operating SONGS.

Contacts for Dan and others are available at the website.
