A sneak peek into an MES thesis: Riparian microclimate variability on the Olympic Peninsula

If you, like me, are interested in forest ecology and forest management, then you have stumbled across the right blog post! For my MES thesis research, I am studying the spatial and temporal variability of riparian microclimate on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State.
