A review of climate change effects on practices for mitigating water quality impacts
(JOURNAL) [Published : Mar 22, 2022]

Estimating ecological risks from climate change requires knowledge of the exposure to multiple stressors along with the susceptibility of the ecological resources to these stressors. Uncertainty and variability are essential components for calculating risks in future conditions. ...
Biological assessment of western USA sandy bottom rivers based on modeling historical and current fish and macroinvertebrate data
(JOURNAL) [Published : May 02, 2022]
Biological monitoring is important for assessing the ecological condition of surface waters. However, there are challenges in determining what constitutes reference conditions, what assemblages should be used as indicators, and how assemblage data should be converted into quantit...
CHARACTERIZING WICKFORD HARBOR, RI BEFORE AND DURING NONPOINT SOURCE NUTRIENT REDUCTIONS
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : Jun 04, 2022]
Wickford Harbor is a cove in central Narragansett Bay which consists of several shallow embayments and whose water quality is heavily influenced by non-point source pollution. Non-point sources of pollution can be hard to identify making them difficult to manage and monitor. In 2...
CONTAMINANTS PLAY A KEY ROLE IN UNDERSTANDING ECOSYSTEM FUNCTION IN TROPICAL URBAN ESTUARIES.
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : Jul 14, 2022]
Tropical urban estuaries are understudied and researchers often apply conceptual frameworks of ecosystem function developed for temperate systems to tropical ones. But it is becoming increasingly clear that the ecosystem dynamics driving tropical estuaries are different from temp...
Carbon Storage in Wetlands of the United States: 2011-2016
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : May 20, 2022]
Wetland soils contain some of the densest stores of carbon in the biosphere.  However, there is little understanding of the quantity and distribution of carbon stored across US wetlands, or how these stocks change over time. Soil carbon was measured using the same protocol t...
Career Path and Current Research: Presentation for Babylon High School
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : May 19, 2022]
This presentation describes my career path, including my college education and journey to EPA. It contains laboratory measurement methods along with their related chemistry concepts. I have included a broad overview of my ongoing research projects. Relevant images are included. T...
Climate Change Shrinks and Fragments Habitats for Salmon in a Snow-Dependent Region
(JOURNAL) [Published : Jun 28, 2022]
Climate change threatens biodiversity through global alteration of habitats, but efficient conservation responses are often hindered by imprecise downscaling of impacts. Besides thermal effects, warming also drives important ancillary environmental changes, such as when river hyd...
Climate Change in the Southeast
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : Jan 06, 2022]
Tanya Spero will give a presentation as part of Region 4’s 2022 Building Climate Resilience series. This four-part, four-month series, which is conducted under the Nonpoint Source (NPS) training program, will connect state, local, and tribal NPS program managers and staff t...
Climate-Induced Invasions: Modeling Complex Responses and Non-native Fish Expansion in a Warming Stream Network
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : May 20, 2022]
Whether through intentional or accidental dispersal, invasive species have had widespread effects on native community dynamics in freshwater ecosystems. Impending shifts in climate patterns may exacerbate the impact of these species on fish communities. For example, warming clima...
Contaminants play a key role in understanding ecosystem function in tropical urban estuaries
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : Mar 04, 2022]
Tropical urban estuaries are understudied and researchers often apply conceptual frameworks of ecosystem function developed for temperate systems to tropical ones. But it is becoming increasingly clear that the ecosystem dynamics driving tropical estuaries are different from temp...
Could nitrogen fixation be an important source of nitrogen in tropical urban estuaries?
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : May 20, 2022]
Recent biogeochemical measurements from the urban San Juan Bay Estuary (SJBE) in Puerto Rico indicate that, despite abundant bioavailable nitrogen (N), N fixation may be an important source of new N to the coastal ecosystem. Nitrogen stable isotope data suggest that N contributio...
