Jenny Dugan featured in BBC rddio science broadcast
A recent paper published in PLoS ONE by U.S. and international long term ecological research scientists quantifying the ecological effects of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck Chile in 2010 is attracting a lot of attention from popular and scientific media. The authors, including Jenny Dugan of the Santa Barbara Coastal Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) site, found that Chile's sandy beaches had experienced significant and lasting changes due to the earthquake and tsunami-including the reappearance of long forgotten coastal habitats and the return of species that had not been seen for years. In the wake of the publication, the authors were recently interviewed by the British Broadcasting Corporation's (BBC) radio magazine, Science in Action (listen at bbc.co.uk).
