We have had an exciting couple of months at CBESS working on our end of project outputs; a carbon predication tool for ecosystem managers and a complimentary citizen science app.
We are an island nation, and yet we know surprisingly little about parts of our coastline. An appeal to ‘citizen scientists’ hopes to put this right by encouraging us to collect information about our salt marshes to fill in the gaps.
Over the coming months the CBESS team at Bangor University will be finalising a saltmarsh carbon stock prediction tool to be launched in June alongside ‘The Saltmarsh App’.
Bangor University and University of Cambridge have had a very productive winter, in this season’s progress report Bangor are the focus. In the spring we will focus on Cambridge and their experiences of influencing professional stakeholders with CBESS science.
CBESS would like to welcome it’s newest member of the team, Dr Julie Webb of Bangor University.
Three of CBESS’ early career researchers have made significant gains in their respective careers; Dr Hilary Ford, Dr Scott Pedley and Dr Tim Hill.
With less than a year until CBESS comes to an end, we are increasingly busy working on Theme 2 (context) and Theme 3 (scale). We have also been back in the field, in preparation for development of the Ecosystem Provisioning Tool. There have also some interesting collaborations between science and art.
The spring months have mostly been about engagement, but behind the scenes were as busy as ever interrogating data and looking for patterns.
