The connections between atmosphere, habitat, and ecology will be explored in a classroom and fi eld-based exploration of the South Slough NERR and nearby coastal environments. Through consideration of Oregon’s coastal weather and climate using weather, climate, and water quality data, we will lay the groundwork for a fi eld experience including intertidal collection, plankton collection and seining followed by a classroom study.
