Randolph physics and environmental studies professor Sarah Sojka co-authored a paper that recently appeared on the website for Estuaries and Coasts, and will be published this fall in a special issue of the journal.
The paper details work by Sojka and several other marine scientists from across the nation to study the ecological effects of “coastal armoring,” or human-made structures along the shores of the United States. The team conducted its research over the course of several years at three sites in the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) network.
“This project was an exciting opportunity to work with great scientists from across the country on an important issue for coastal ecosystems,” Sojka said.
