Eelgrass Decline: Critical Field Data Using Collector for ArcGIS
Track: Teaching and Research
Authors: David Smith, Jessica Kolsky, Rebecca Lyons
For more than a decade, populations of the temperate eelgrass in the San Juan Archipelago of Washington State have been in decline. Risk factors associated with eelgrass loss of this nature are largely unknown. In collaboration with the University of Washington and the San Juan National Historical Park, University of Redlands chemistry professor Dr. Rebecca Lyons used Collector for ArcGIS to record atmospheric, soil and water data to investigate this critical environmental issue.
