David and I are in Sydney, Australia, on visiting research appointments with the University of Technology Sydney. We arrived the first of the year, and after recovering from jet lag and getting our bearings, we embarked this week on setting up a couple of new experiments. We have great local “guides” – Dr. Peter Macreadie (UTS), Dr. Paul York (UTS), Dr. Paul Gribben (UTS), and Dr. Melanie Bishop (Macquarie University) – to introduce us to the field systems and collaborate with us on these projects.
Our seagrass and razor clam experiment is set up at Point Wolstoncroft in Lake Macquarie (north of Sydney).
If you missed it on Dimensions, here is our video on the Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail. This segment runs from Port Saint Joe to the Saint Marks National Wildlife Refuge. There are several camping options along the way; Doug Alderson (Of FDEP’s Office of Greenways and Trails) takes us to St. George Island State Park to look at some sites.
