On May 1st, Andrea & Emily teamed up to give two presentations on mud dispersal downstream of the Elwha River dam removals at the Salish Sea Conference in Seattle. This conference, which is held every other year, rotates between Vancouver BC, Bellingham, and Seattle. Talks and posters focus on a range of science and cultural topics surrounding the Salish Sea, the waterbody formed by the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Puget Sound, and Strait of Georgia to the north. This year’s conference included a session about the Elwha River restoration, which covered a range of topics from export of reservoir sediment to recovery of salmon species. It was a great opportunity to hear updates and collaborate with fellow researchers.
