BROWN BAG SEMINAR: Managing water quality across boundaries

There are numerous agencies involved in water quality issues that are focused on the San Francisco Bay and the Delta.  In this brown bag seminar, Stephanie Fong, Interagency Ecological Program Coordinator Chair, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, discussed the technical, geographical, and political boundaries that separate water quality monitoring in the Bay and the Delta. MANY, MANY BOUNDARIES … […]

BROWN BAG SEMINAR: Viewing estuaries from a ‘macroscope’: How global, regional, and local processes affect the San Francisco Bay and Delta

There has been an ongoing conversation about the importance of thinking about the San Francisco Estuary holistically as a connected system, rather than siloing the Bay, Delta, and watersheds.  The system is connected, after all, and it is important not to ignore the influence they have on each other. However, the connections just don’t end at the Golden Gate.  The […]

METROPOLITAN BAY-DELTA COMMITTEE: Salmon predation in the Delta

Study results suggest removing predators won’t address the problem, but removing submerged aquatic vegetation might At the May meeting of Metropolitan’s Special Committee on the Bay-Delta, Alison Collins, Senior Resource Specialist for Metropolitan, presented the results of a recent study looking at the effects of predation on juvenile salmon.  The study was funded by Metropolitan Water District and the Department […]

BROWN BAG SEMINAR: Synthesis within the Interagency Ecological Program: Growing to Meet Increasing Needs

The Interagency Ecological Program (IEP) is a consortium of State and federal agencies that has been conducting cooperative ecological investigations since the 1970s. The IEP relies upon multidisciplinary teams of agency, academic, nongovernmental organizations, and other scientists to conduct collaborative and scientifically sound monitoring, research, modeling, and synthesis efforts for various aspects of the aquatic ecosystem. In 2018, the Delta […]

BROWN BAG SEMINAR: Adventures in Decision-oriented Ecosystem Services Modeling

Ecosystem services are the many and varied benefits that humans gain from the natural environment – things such as food, water, wood, fish, and wildlife. While the concept of ecosystem services has been around for decades, it was the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment in the early 2000s that popularized the concept. The Assessment grouped ecosystem services four broad categories: provisioning (such […]

BROWN BAG SEMINAR: Ecosystem services, conservation, and the Delta

Second part of a three part series investigating ecosystem services and what it means for science in the Delta Ecosystems are the communities that are formed by the interaction between living things such as plants, wildlife, and humans, and non-living things, such as the air, water, and soil. Humans are both part of ecosystems and a beneficiary of ecosystems in […]

BROWN BAG SEMINAR: Towards multi-functional resilient landscapes: environmental heterogeneity as a bridge among diverse ecosystem services

Ecosystem services are the many and varied benefits that humans freely gain from the natural environment and from properly-functioning ecosystems that provide things such as food and fiber, timber, fish, and wildlife. Studies in ecosystem services estimate the ways ecosystems benefit us, be it by providing food, regulating floods, or creating a feeling of well-being. In early 2018, the Delta […]
