AWMS/CWSP graduate Daniel Orr and Marine Science undergraduate Patrick Sabordo conducting intertidal habitat and wave force surveys at the Bamfield Marine Science Centre in British Columbia, Canada. As part of a project funded by the National Science Foundation, Dr. Corey Garza and students in the Marine Landscape Ecology Lab are studying how the three dimensional structure of marine communities imparts resistance to physical disturbances such as storm surge. Their research is being used by ecologists and resource agencies to forecast how the structure of marine systems, such as intertidal and kelp forest communities, may affect their resistance to disturbances arising from predicted increases in coastal storm surge as a result of climate change.
