2019 Conference Talk: TUESDAY, JULY 9: Black Oystercatchers and Sea Level Rise in Pacific Grove, California with Amanda Preece and Rahil Ryder
"Amanda and Rahil will discuss their work on the effects of sea level rise on the availability of Black Oystercatcher habitat in Pacific Grove, CA. Both masters students at CSUMB, Amanda and Rahil took on the challenging topic of sea level rise for their Remote Sensing class, in which satellite imagery or other remotely sensed data is used to answer specific ecological questions. They used ArcGIS in conjunction with NOAA's sea level rise projections, plus additional help from our local Black Oystercatcher Monitoring Project, to develop maps that indicate which sections of the oystercatcher territories are at risk from sea level rise.
