    Excellent project design looking at the social-political obstacles as well as the ecologic impacts. Are any shallow sediment cores going to be taken from the floodplains? Such cores maybe revealing in terms of changes in flood frequency, erosion rates, plant communities etc.

    Thanks for your comment! We haven’t been focused on reconstructing the ecological past as much as the history of actions and interactions of people living in and managing the floodplain. This means that our methods have focused on gathering historic documents in archives across the country.

    In part, this is because for the time period we’re interested in (roughly the past 100 years), things like flood frequency are well documented by the US Geological Survey, and there has been some other important reconstruction work by the San Francisco Bay Estuary Historical Ecology project. Sediment core techniques, though, would provide some useful complementary data.

    Nice work Aggies. We’ll keep our eyes out for opportunities for participation in the CA policy discussions you’ll be having.
