Latest Brown Bag Seminars Focus on Subsidence, Native Pondweed, and Data Integration

From the Delta Science Program:

2Snipped Sneed“The Delta Stewardship Council’s Joint Brown Bag seminars convey the latest scientific research and information and are sponsored by the Council’s Science Program in conjunction with the Ecosystem Restoration Program and the Surface Water Ambient Monitoring Program.

The most recent three seminars focused on subsidence, native pondweed, and data integration.

California experiences two types of land subsidence—a gradual settling or sudden sinking of the earth’s surface owing to compression of subsurface materials. One is from the oxidation of peat soils in the Delta. The second type, and the single largest cause of subsidence in California, is the compaction of susceptible aquifer systems caused by excessive groundwater pumping. This second type was explored during an April 20 Delta Science Program Brown Bag Seminar. … ”
