Women's Club virtual speaker Dr. Douglas Smith

Join the UCSC Women's Club for Another Dam Talk: A Review of San Clemente Dam Removal and Carmel River Response presented by Dr. Douglas Smith, Professor of Applied Environmental Science at California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB).

Dam removal is a growing trend for both environmental and safety reasons.  San Clemente Dam was recently removed from the Carmel River—the largest dam removal in California history.  The project was an adventuresome and bold departure from other large dam removal projects in several ways; it now provides a living laboratory for observing the intended and unintended consequences of large-scale dam removal. 

In this talk, we will learn how Dr. Doug Smith and Cal State Monterey Bay students are using the latest drone technology to analyze the post-dam evolution of the Carmel River. 

All are welcome for this presentation which will be delivered via Zoom. All current club members will receive the Zoom info via email. Any non-members, please email Andrea Cohen, acohen@ucsc.edu, for the Zoom information.
