Faculty William Wood Chemistry

An article titled "Candid Photographic Portraits" and 9 photographs was published in the September issue of Redwood Snapshots, a publication of the Redwood Camera Club.

Candid photography, sometimes called “street photography,” has long been an important aspect of William Wood's phtography. It involves taking photos of people acting spontaneously in their natural environment. These photographs preserve an instant in people’s lives when they are relaxed and behaving naturally.

Faculty Andrew P. Stubblefield Forestry, Fire & Rangeland Management

Participated in Early Career Scientist Assembly at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder Colorado.
The purpose of the forum was to discuss means of closing the gap between climate change scientists and water resource managers. The goal was to help improve the adaptation of human societies to climate change impacts. Participants cowrote a position paper which will be submitted to the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.

Faculty Sharon N. Kahara Wildlife

Public lecture at the Arcata Marsh Interpretive Center during their "Celebrating American Wetlands Month" on May 20th 2010. Title of the talk was "Marsh Crowdsourcing! What you get when you cross wetlands, citizen scientists and cell phones".
The talk focused on the importance of monitoring wetland restoration projects and the pros and cons of citizen science data collection as a viable means to do this. Newer, more efficient public data collection methods are becoming available.
