I have led the hydrological and hydrochemical measurement and modeling aspects of the SBC LTER. This research has involved installation and operation of stream gauging system and automatic rain gauges, intensive sampling for solutes, and processing and analysis of thousands of water and particulate samples. These data are incorporated into mechanistic and statistical models of runoff and export, and are included in examination of nutrient supply to the near-shore kelp ecosystem.
