In October, the Western Coastal and Marine Geology team was joined by two new postdocs. They will be working with David Rubin on sediment studies along the Pacific coast.

Noah Snyder is a new postdoctoral scientist from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Noah's thesis research was on bedrock-river response and processes in coastal northern California. He has had field experience in Alaska and Death Valley and on ground-water studies in Utah. Noah is based in Santa Cruz and will be working on two projects: studies evaluating the possible removal of Englebright Dam from the Yuba River in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, and sediment studies in San Francisco Bay.

Jodi Harney is a new Mendenhall postdoctoral scientist from the University of Hawaii. Jodi's thesis research was on ecosystems and carbonate sediment budgets in Hawaii. Jodi has had experience in coastal sedimentology, diving, multispectral mapping, and integrated geologic and biologic studies. She is based in Santa Cruz and will be studying the impact of sediment dynamics on benthic communities in the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.
