COASST Authored Scientific Publications
The COASST team, working with many collaborators, translates data and our experiences into stories for our science, resource management and citizen science peers via peer-reviewed literature. If you don’t have access to the journals or would prefer a more ‘reader friendly’ format (ie. less jargon, more story) visit the Science Updates section on our Cool COASSTal Stories page to read another version of our latest publications.
