Erin Kinney is a Postdoctoral Research Scientist at HARC specializing in coastal and wetland ecology. Her research interests include wetland restoration, impacts of land use and eutrophication on coastal systems, and carbon and nitrogen cycling in wetlands. Erin graduated with a PhD in biology from the Boston University Marine Program and a BA in environmental and evolutionary biology from Dartmouth College. She previously worked as a postdoctoral research associate in the department of marine biology at Texas A&M University at Galveston and at the Ecosystem Center at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA.
The online wetland mitigation mapping tool has been released to identify impacts to wetlands and potential hazards associated with surrounding development.
HARC created an interactive mapping application to allow the public to understand some of the potential environmental impacts the March 2014 oil spill may have on the Galveston Bay.
HARC Researchers, Stephanie Glenn, Lisa Gonzalez, and Erin Kinney, presented at the CERF 2013 conference "Toward Resilient Coasts and Estuaries, Science for Sustainable Solutions" November 3-7, 2013 in San Diego, California.
