On September 27 & 28, the California Estuarine Research Society (CAERS) held its 10th annual conference, hosted at CSU Long Beach by Dr. Christine Whitcraft. This marked the highest attendance and representation by University of San Diego ever at a CAERS conference, with more than 15% of all presentations being given by University of San Diego faculty, students, or affiliates, including one of the keynote addresses on ocean acidification by our own Dr. Nathalie Reyns

It has been great to see the increase in participation of University of San Diego at the California Estuarine Research Society - we were represented by only one talk between 2003-2007,  and that has grown to 15% of the talks and a plurality (almost 20%) of the attendees in 2012. CAERS always has  a fascinating series of talks and posters, and is a mustn't-miss event for wetland scientists, students, and managers in California and Baja California!
