dc.description.abstract Usha Varanasi, Affiliate Professor, School of Aquatic & Fisheries Sciences and Department of Chemistry; Distinguished Scholar in Residence, Center for Urban Waters and College of the Environment, University of Washington. Abstract: In the spirit of fostering interdisciplinary dialogue, the Washington Journal of Environmental Law and Policy is proud to present this Article. Professor Varanasi takes examples from her career as a fisheries scientist for the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration to argue for a new model for ecological disaster planning and response, in which baseline ecosystem data is collected in advance of possible incidents so that decision-makers are empowered to make informed choices from the first stages of disaster response. She concludes by urging sustained and targeted funding for long-term ecosystem data collection to better understand various disasters’ effects on a region and to improve prospects for restoration of the degraded ecosystem and recovery of species. —2012–13 Editorial Board en_US
