Under direction, incumbents must have course work in the discipline requested on the task order Statement of Work. In accordance with OPNAV M-5090.1, Chapter 12, weed management on NWS Detachment is part of the habitat enhancement program for threatened and endangered species in both upland and riparian habitats and is covered under the Detachment’s Wildland Fire Management Plan BO (FWS-SD-3506.3). This statement of work implements elements of adaptive weed management for the eradication and control of invasive plant species, such as bridal veil broom (Genista monosperma). After decades of herbicide treatment, many invasive plants species can still persist throughout a large area of NWS Detachment, and can spread to neighboring Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. Though causes can vary, a persistent seedbank is one way that new plants are continually produced. To more effectively target weed control efforts and determine the possibility of eradication of invasive plant species, this project will investigate the bridal broom seedbank on NWS Detachment and the environmental conditions required for germination.

Under direct supervision, incumbents must have coursework in the discipline requested on the task order statement of work.   This Statement of Work encompasses the need for the services a student to provide technical and/or analytical support in the fields of Marine Biology, Oceanography, Biology and Chemistry towards integration of a new technology – Signal Activated Bottom Lander (SABL) Trap – into current sediment and stormwater monitoring efforts. The specific task requires use of both standardized and innovate laboratory-based testing procedures to evaluate the benefits of incorporating the SABL Trap into NPDES monitoring and Sediment Investigation Studies being conducted at Naval Base San Diego (NBSD) as part of project #595 funded through the Navy Environmental Sustainability Development to Integration (NESDI) program. These tasks will be conducted in the Bioassay Laboratory at NIWC Pacific in San Diego, CA. Background: This work will support the NESDI Program, under Project #595, “Demonstration of Signal Activated Bottom Lander (SABL) Trap”. Currently, Traditional sediment traps suffer from limitations related to their inability to distinguish between stormwater sources, industrial sources or local resuspension sources because they simply integrate all sources over the deployment interval. Thus, a critical need exists for a sediment deposition sampling capability that is event-based allowing selective collection of deposited material based on user or site-specific conditions for a better understanding of sediment recovery and recontamination potential and associated sources of deposited sediments. The objective of this project is to adapt emerging passive, multi-sample sediment trap technology more commonly used in deep water oceanographic applications towards more Navy relevant coastal environmental applications. This includes development and demonstration of a signal activated sediment trap, or Signal Activated Bottom Lander (SABL), technology that can target specific particle discharge or resuspension events. Tasks to evaluate the utility of the SABL will include preliminary evaluation in controlled pier-side deployments and site demonstrations at Naval harbors where stormwater runoff or other episodic influences are critical to recovery and recontamination assessment (e.g. Naval Base San Diego/Chollas Creek and Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam). These tasks will be conducted in the Bioassay Laboratory at SSC Pacific in San Diego, CA. The student shall be involved in the preparation, performance and data analysis of laboratory-based toxicity testing, and with general laboratory maintenance.
