The goal of our work to better understand the impacts that humans are having on coastal processes and ecosystems so that coastal environments can be better managed.  We combine field and laboratory research with geospatial analysis and modeling to examine the impacts of environmental change to coastal environments. We focus on nutrient pollution, sea level rise, changing precipitation patterns, land use change, and management actions.

We have active research projects in the Mid-Atlantic, New England, California, Latin America and the Caribbean and work closely with environmental management and stewardship organizations, including Save the BayThe Nature Conservancy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Estuarine Research Reserve System.
