Dave Reid, who works at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Pacific Science Center in Santa Cruz, CA, won the 22nd Annual Santa Cruz Sentinel Triathlon on September 26. Dave completed the race—a 1.5-km ocean swim, 40-km bike ride, and 10-km run—in 1 hour, 58 minutes, and 19 seconds. Dave has competed several times in the annual race; this was his first victory. A detailed story about the event was published in the Santa Cruz Sentinel on September 27 and can be viewed on the Santz Cruz Sentinel Web site.

At the USGS, Dave works with Cheryl Hapke on the National Assessment of Coastal Change Hazards Project. They are currently using historical maps, lidar (light detection and ranging) data, and geographic-information-system (GIS) technology to calculate long-term (120-year) shoreline-change rates for the entire U.S. west coast.
