Principal Investigators:

Land use in the San Francisco Estuary since the mid to late 1800s likely has altered the system to the point that traditional objectives for restoration (e.g., reversion of structure, composition, and function to the original state of the system) cannot be achieved. This working group will address three major issues through analysis of existing data and associated discussions about conceptual frameworks. First, we will address the scope of changes in system state in the San Francisco Estuary, especially with respect to productivity in the pelagic... more
