Description

See also: Elkhorn Slough Water Quality, Polluted Runoff

 
The Elkhorn Slough estuary -- significantly influenced by agricultural land uses and hosting substantial water quality monitoring and research efforts -- provides an important case study for developing a better understanding of the transport and transformation of nutrients in estuaries along the Central Coast of California and beyond. How do nutrients move in surface water run-off or through shallow groundwater pathways? How do these nutrients change during the course of their movements?
 
This workshop will discuss recent and new research efforts -- representing different approaches that address a range of geographic scope, data resolution, and data integration and modeling  -- that tackle questions about the transport and transformation of nutrients in the Elkhorn Slough estuary.
 
In addition to (1) reviewing the recent work and introducing the new projects, (2) discussing the possible intersections and complementarities among these efforts, we will be (3) soliciting feedback from participants on additional issues of particular scientific or management interest that investigators may be able to address through these or future projects.
