Cliff Dahm, Ph.D., Delta Stewardship Council, Delta Science Program - Lead Scientist


Increasing clarity of waters, the emergence of harmful algal blooms, the proliferation of aquatic water weeds, and altered food webs have brought the issue of nutrient dynamics to the forefront in the Delta.


Dr. Cliff Dahm’s career has focused on nutrient biogeochemistry in aquatic ecosystems. In this Brown Bag Seminar he will weave some insights from past research in other aquatic ecosystems with the nutrient studies that are ongoing in the Delta.


This Brown Bag seminar is one of a series previewing the upcoming State of Bay-Delta Science 2016. Coordinated by the Delta Stewardship Council, State of Bay-Delta Science is series of 15 publications that summarize our current scientific understanding of the Bay-Delta, and will include a report by  Dr. Cliff Dahm on nutrients, and their effects on primary producers and water management decisions.

Coequal goals

The Delta Stewardship Council was created in legislation to achieve the state mandated coequal goals for the Delta. "'Coequal goals' means the two goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. The coequal goals shall be achieved in a manner that protects and enhances the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource, and agricultural values of the Delta as an evolving place." (CA Water Code §85054)
