Lisa C. Wickliffe, PhD
Lisa supports marine spatial ecology for the NOAA NOS NCCOS, Coastal Aquaculture Siting and Sustainability program. Her research focuses on marine aquaculture resource mapping, including site screening and selection, exclusion analyses, suitability modeling, decision-making analysis and tool development for aquaculture. She also works on biogeographical assessments of priority fisheries species to inform aquaculture siting and environmental models. She received a BS in Marine Science at the University of South Carolina, a MS in wildlife and fisheries biology at Clemson University and a PhD in Environmental Health Sciences at University of South Carolina.
JHT Biologist Names Newly Discovered Marine Species for NOAA
JHT Biologist Enrique J. Salgado and a team of NOAA scientists were recently credited by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration for discovering a new species of marine sponge off the coast of southeastern Alaska. Mr. Salgado was given the esteemed honor of naming the new species by NOAA.
Climate Change and Watershed Hydrology—Heavier Precipitation Influence on Stormwater Runoff
Authors: Anne C. Blair and Denise Sanger
Abstract Excerpt: Stormwater runoff in the USA is a main driver of non-point source pollution and other major problems for urbanizing areas, and runoff effects will be exacerbated by the increased frequency and intensity of heavier storm events that are projected as climate changes. The purpose of this paper is to consider how increased rainfall from storms could influence direct stormwater runoff in urbanizing watersheds.
