Dialogues and Workshops
Through its Uncommon Dialogues and workshops the Stanford Woods Institute brings together leaders from government, NGOs and business with experts from Stanford and other academic institutions to develop practical solutions to pressing environmental challenges. These dialogues equip leaders to make informed decisions for a sustainable future while creating a two-way flow of information that brings new perspectives and context to Stanford's environmental research.

Changes are ahead for San Francisco Bay, some of which are planned, but many of which are not. This estuarine system is evolving as we try to restore some of its habitats and other characteristic features. To understand the implications of the changes we make to the system and to help guide those changes, we must have predictive tools, models and modeling frameworks, to guide us. This was underscored at a Modeling and Monitoring Workshop conducted on January 19, 2007 by the Coastal Ocean Currents Monitoring Program, NOAA, and the South Bay Salt Pond (SBSP) Restoration Project. The workshop was well-attended by a wide array of coastal and San Francisco Bay researchers.
