fieldwork in Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge

As part of a project to assess marsh response to human alterations, over the past few weeks we have deployed a series of moorings in the Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge. This project is in collaboration with the Seal Beach National Wildlife Refuge, Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach, and Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southwest. Doing all of this work socially distanced, chasing break of dawn low tides, and in sinking mud, has been very challenging but things are now all in place!
