Wetlands of South San Francisco Bay--Conversion from Salt Evaporation Ponds to Tidal Marsh Habitat


The information on this page reflects the research of Dr. L. Jean Palmer-Moloney (Principal Investigator) and her team* at NASA's Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA. 

*Other team members are Dr. J. Bradley Dalton, Dr. Chris Hlavka, and Dana Rogoff



Currently the project, Linking In Situ and Remote Sensing Measurements to Characterize and Monitor Critical Parameters of the Estuarine Wetlands of southern San Francisco Bay, is being funded by a NASA Ames Director's Discretionary Fund Award.


Building the Environmental Database (work in progress)

(Please note--The following are Microsoft PowerPoint Presentations and require PowerPoint software to open.  Also, the files are quite large and may take some time to download.) Posters may be viewed on the computer screen or ordered by contacting JPM.  The Fact Sheet will copy onto an 8.5/11" page
