 Daniel Ducat, Assistant Professor, Michigan State University

 Department of Plant and Microbial Biology

Daniel Ducat is an assistant professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. His lab is interested in using engineering and synthetic approaches to examine the biology and biotechnological application of these intriguing bacteria. He earned his Ph.D. in Molecular and Cell Biology at Johns Hopkins University.

Visualizing the Complexity of Past and Future Shoreline and Near-Shore Environments over Time: Examples from Australia, Vietnam, and California

Lecture | September 11 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 2251 College (Archaeological Research Facility)

 Thomas G. Whitley, Associate Professor, Anthropology, Sonoma State University

 Archaeological Research Facility

By incorporating dynamic geomorphological processes into the environmental modeling it becomes possible to provide much more accurate depictions of the inundation and retreat of shorelines over time, their hydrodynamics, and the evolution of shoreline and near-shore ecosystems. Presented here are some examples of this approach using highly diverse datasets from Australia, Vietnam, and California.
