Andrew Stevens has accepted a position as an oceanographer with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s Western Coastal and Marine Geology Team (WCMG), where he will be working with Guy Gelfenbaum.

Andrew received a B.S. in oceanography from Humboldt State University in 2002 and an M.S. in oceanography from Oregon State University in 2004. For his M.S. thesis, Andrew worked as part of the USGS EuroSTRATAFORM project, investigating along-margin changes in sediment erodibility in the Adriatic Sea (see related articles, "Voyage to Recover and Redeploy Instruments in the Adriatic Sea—the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" and "USGS Participates in Sediment-Transport Cruise in the Adriatic Sea" in Sound Waves, April 2003 and December 2002/January 2003). Andrew also participated in the team's recent project off the Palos Verdes shelf in southern California to study the fate of contaminated sediment in the region. After receiving his M.S. degree, Andrew spent a year at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in Newport, Oreg., developing acoustic methods for quantifying seagrass habitat.

At the USGS, Andrew will be working primarily on collecting and analyzing data collected as part of the Coastal Habitats in Puget Sound project. He is also currently examining data from several tripods deployed at the mouth of the Columbia River to validate modeling studies of wave-current interaction being carried out by visiting scientist Giles Lesser. Andrew's research interests include sediment-transport processes and products, estuarine and nearshore ecology, and acoustic characterization of coastal habitats.

Andrew's office is Room 1213 in Menlo Park, Calif., and his phone number is 650-329-5243. Please come by and welcome Andrew to the USGS.
