Presentation Title:
CASCaDE : A tool for examining the effect of climate change on the San Francisco Delta Ecosystem

Desription of Presentation:
CASCaDE examines the response of the San Francisco Delta ecosystem to several scenarios of climate change through a series of linked models. The linked models include global and regional climate models, a watershed model, Delta/Bay hydrodynamic models, geomorphic and suspended sediment models, a phytoplankton model, a series of fish life history models, and a contaminant bioaccumulation model.

Presenter Name & Contact Info:
Jan Thompson San Francisco Estuary, USGS, Menlo Park,CA 94025

Presenter's Biography:
Jan Thompson began working for the US Geological Survey in 1972, and has spent most of her career studying the aquatic ecology of the San Francisco Estuary and its freshwater Delta. She has a bachelor's degree in biology from Lewis and Clark College in Oregon, a Masters degree in Marine Biology from San Francisco State, and a PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Stanford. Her specific area of expertise is the study of benthic organisms and how these organisms reflect and affect ecosystem function. She is coordinator of the Priority Ecosystem Study of the San Francisco Estuary that both developed the CASCaDE study and provided 15+ years of research leading up to the study.
