Shallow water is a dynamic piece of the Chesapeake Bay watershed puzzle. There are myriad interactions between land and sea that manifest in shallow water, making modeling this environment a hefty undertaking. How do we improve our collective understanding of these complicated but crucial environments to make good management and restoration decisions?

Join us on Wednesday, March 17th, from 12-1 pm to discuss the progress being made on the science of shallow water monitoring, modeling, and management.

About CRC Roundtable

The Chesapeake Research Consortium (CRC) comprises seven research and education institutions around the Chesapeake Bay, convening with the goal of using science to inform management. We launched the CRC Roundtable, a monthly virtual seminar series, to host targeted, inclusive, and informed conversations matching scientific advances and management needs in a way that moves us collectively forward toward decision-making for effective and sustainable management of the Chesapeake Bay, its watershed, and its living resources.

The lunchtime seminars will invite a diverse range of researchers, managers, and other professionals to have timely conversations around topics relevant to the Chesapeake partnership. The seminars also build connectivity across participating organizations and identify ways to increase our collective competency for decision making.
