Upstream changes in land use and land cover impact the quality and quantity of riverine flows to estuarine environments, leading to degradation of many nearshore habitats. Alonso and colleagues are using satellite imagery to characterize large-scale relationships between upstream change, river flow, and oyster reef health.
Can you tell us a bit about this contest? Each year, NC State calls on graduate students, postdocs, faculty and staff to take part in a research image contest they call Envisioning Research.
The goal of the contest is to highlight the beauty and importance of the work being done at the bench and in the field, both on campus and around the world. Can you explain what we are seeing in this Landsat 8 image of the Suwannee River Estuary that took first place in the contest?

Senior undergraduate or graduate students interested in anthropology, indigenous studies, or political ecology will find the work accessible and very relevant to the contemporary history of development on aboriginal lands.

Drawing on ethnographic research in three sub-arctic communities, Carly Dokis artfully documents how this process continually fails to engage northern First Nations in locally meaningful ways. As Dokis reminds us, they involve questions about what is valuable and meaningful, consideration for the preferred modes of living of different groups within the country, and thoughtfulness about how persons and environments should be treated.
