New Faculty/Staff Publications & Research Awards: Fall 2019

Banner Quarterly Scholarly Publications & Sponsored Research

We are pleased to announce that the Library will now be sharing quarterly lists of recent faculty and staff publications and integrating this into our communication with faculty about openly sharing their scholarly work. This announcement is made in coordination with the quarterly research awards gathered by the Office of Research, which are listed below the publications.

Scholarly Publications

The list of publications below includes all known books, book chapters, edited volumes, and peer-reviewed articles that were first published (including on-line) between September 1, 2019 – December 31, 2019. A preliminary list was generated by using Scopus and Google Scholar, along with making general calls for new works to UW Tacoma faculty and staff. (If you published a work during this time, and it doesn’t appear on this list or if you have corrections, please let us know and we will add it.)

An unlocked symbol Open Access Logo appears beside all works that are available Open Access (OA), which means that it “is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions” (Peter Suber). We call attention to OA work because it enables the wider community to engage with it. To be available OA, the work must be either published in an OA journal; shared via a disciplinary OA repository; or deposited in UW Tacoma Digital Commons. If you have questions about how to openly share your work, please contact us.

Recent Research Awards

Congratulations to the following sponsored research award recipients at UW Tacoma. (Awards received September 1-December 31, 2019)

Cheryl Greengrove, SIAS/Sciences and Mathematics
MERHAB 19: Application of a quantitative molecular method to characterize abundance and distribution of Alexandrium Cysts for NOAA’s HAB Forecasting
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)

NOAA is developing Alexandrium bloom forecast products through the HAB (harmful algal bloom) Operational Forecasting System to mitigate human health risks and economic effects of shellfish closures during seasonal blooms of Alexandrium catenella in U.S. Atlantic northeast and Pacific northwest states. Forecasting efforts hinge on determination of wintertime abundance of Alexandrium resting cysts in the sediment at bloom locations.  This project will evaluate a new quantitative PCR (qPCR) assay for A. catenella cysts using sediment samples from the Gulf of Maine, Puget Sound and Alaska.

Tessa Francis, Center for Urban Waters
Residential Shoreline Loan Program Feasibility Study
Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

This grant will conduct a feasibility study for the development of a self-sustaining Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) program to provide homeowners with low-interest loans for shoreline management projects. The RLF program would address the construction funding need faced by residential property owners when seeking to reduce shoreline impacts on their property through actions such as armor removal, soft-shore stabilization, and/or sea level rise risk reduction.

Jim Gawel, SIAS/Sciences and Mathematics
Biofilm Pilot 2019 – Wapato Lake
City of Tacoma

Funding was awarded to conduct a pilot study to test the design and effectiveness of a freshwater algae turf scrubber (ATS). Algae Turf Scrubbers are extremely effective in permanently removing harmful nutrients from water sources. This project will determine the rate and amount of nutrient removal from Wapato Lake water samples using a small-scale ATS.

Ed Kolodziej, Center for Urban Waters
Water Treatment Performance of Engineered Hyporheic Zones in Urban Creeks
Seattle Public Utilities (SPU)

A previous pilot study funded by SPU tested two floodplain reconnection projects on Thornton Creek, and measured project effectiveness with respect to detaining and treating storm water runoff entering the creek. One of the unique design elements of both projects was an engineered streambed featuring a constructed hyporheic zone. The hyporheic zone is the area of mixing of surface and ground waters within the streambed, which circulates, cools and cleans the surface water entering the streambed. The preliminary monitoring results indicate that a substantial fraction of the surface water is directed into, and travels through, the streambed, resulting in the removal of hundreds of organic storm water pollutants through a single hyporheic design element (a.k.a. a plunge pool structure) during both summer base flows, and medium-sized autumn storm flows. The results exceeded expectations and were published in a peer-reviewed journal (Peter et al., Water Research 2019). SPU provided additional funds to continue the partnership and joint contribution to this research work.

Ariana Ochoa Camacho, SIAS/Social and Historical Studies
Woodrow Wilson Career Enhancement Fellowship
Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation

With support from the Woodrow Wilson Career Enhancement Fellowship, Dr. Ochoa Camacho intends to advance two articles based on elements of her previous research provisionally titled “Los Panfletos: Imprints from the Neoliberalization of Violence on the Colombian Cultural Archive of Unbelonging” and “Maria is not Full of Grace: The heteronormative imperative of U.S. and Colombian media narratives” which deal with cultural texts and ideas of belonging.

Andy James, Center for Urban Waters
Gathering, Compilation and Processing of PCB data for use in Salish Sea Model – Toxics Module Development and Application
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL)

PNNL (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory) is leading a U.S. EPA funded project titled “Fate and Transport of Toxic Contaminants in Puget Sound – Development of a Toxics Module for the Salish Sea Model Using Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs)”. The overall objective of this project is to enhance the capabilities of the existing Salish Sea Model (SSM) to assist the agencies responsible for management of water quality and aquatic life in Puget Sound with respect to PCB contamination in the water column, sediments, and the pelagic and benthic food webs. When completed SSM-Toxics is expected to assist agencies design effective management actions to reduce the exposure of biota to toxics such as PCBs.

University of Washington (UW) will be leading the PCB data compilation and preparation tasks for the project through a subcontract from PNNL.

Joel Baker, Center for Urban Waters
Puget Sound Action Agenda-Puget Sound Institute Renewal
Puget Sound Partnership (PSP) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Led by the Puget Sound Institute, an experienced, strategic and expert coalition will guide, use, review, and revise scientific processes and information to support the development and adaptation of Action Agenda Vital Sign Implementation Strategies (IS). The coalition will collaborate with Strategic Initiative teams, the Partnership’s science panel, the science community, and other partners to characterize the state of knowledge about Vital Signs and their management; identify and address needs for research, monitoring, and modeling, including contributions from social sciences; design the science based adaptation of ISs; and synthesize science findings to improve the development of ISs and to communicate key messages from and about ISs. This award will (1) develop regional consensus that Implementation Strategies are credible depictions of the paths to recovery and protection and (2) increase confidence that plans for recovery and protection will deliver expected results.

Belinda Louie, School of Education
Teaching English Language Learners – Professional Development (TELL-PD)
US Department of Education

Project goals for TELL-PD aim at supporting educators to improve academic performance for ELs: 1) pre-service teachers complete WA certification with EL endorsement license; 2) principals and in-service teachers complete hybrid professional development modules to improve EL instruction; 3) in-service teachers take online endorsement program; and 4) Parents, families, and community will expand and enhance their skills, strategies, and knowledge to communicate and to collaborate to support ELs’ learning.
