Amelie Cecile Berger
Amelie earned a BS degree in environmental geoscience from Texas A&M University. Her dissertation research now focuses on the ecology of seagrass meadows in the shallow coastal bays of the VCR-LTER. She is using the eddy covariance technique to quantify whole-system metabolism in a seagrass meadow during its recovery from a die-off event that occurred in summer 2015. This die-off presents a unique opportunity to study the recovery and resilience of seagrass ecosystems, which has implications for future restoration efforts.
