In an event convened by the San Francisco Estuary Partnership, SFEI contributed its own intellectual labor to the State of the Estuary Conference. Letitia Grenier served as the lead scientist for the State of the Estuary Report, unveiled at the gathering, and SFEI's scientists and technologists were featured prominently in the program on subjects ranging from nutrients to landscape resilience to green infrastructure to data and tools. By all measures, it was a successful conference.
The Twittersphere was very active during the conference, sharing key observations using video, still pictures, and simple quotations. Attendees conveyed the most salient moments to a world-wide crowd of more than 400,000.
