Cuyama Valley Micronet project 2016

With SB county, California, global change will certainly impact coastal zones. However, dryland ecosystems will also be subject to significant change. To examine the importance of shrubs as a buffer to some of these processes, we are deploying a micro-environmental network to measure the amplitude of several key processes. It turned out to be a real gem of a study site.

So much beauty just over the hill away from the roads.
