Dr. Ashley A. Coble joins NCASI as forest watershed scientist

NCASI is pleased to welcome Dr. Ashley A. Coble as a forest watershed scientist. Prior to joining NCASI Dr. Coble was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of New Hampshire where she studied water quality, nutrient uptake, and carbon dynamics across watersheds in New Hampshire, Puerto Rico, and the Siberian Arctic. Her research focused on human impacts on watersheds, the impacts of climate change and long-term change on surface water chemistry, and understanding the dynamic relationships between nutrients and carbon composition. 

Dr. Coble has a B.A. in Biological Sciences from Mount Holyoke College, an M.S. in Terrestrial Biogeochemistry from the School of Forestry at Northern Arizona University, and a Ph.D. in Aquatic Biogeochemistry from 

the Department of Biological Sciences at Michigan Technological University. Her Ph.D. research focused on streams as integrators of terrestrial ecosystem processes.

Dr. Coble will be an important contributor to NCASI’s team that provides research and technical support on forest watershed management issues. She will be working collaboratively with other NCASI staff, NCASI member companies, universities, agencies, and others to design and implement scientific investigations in the fields of forest hydrology, water quality, and aquatic ecology.

Dr. Coble’s office will be at the NCASI West Coast Regional Center in Corvallis, Oregon.
