October 13, 2020: Patuxent River Research Cruises: Building on a scientific & educational legacy

Date: October 13, 2020

Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

FREE public webinar.

It is critical to understand how natural and human factors affect the Chesapeake Bay’s ecosystems if we are to restore, manage and sustain this unique estuary. In 2018, CBL developed the Patuxent River Research Cruise Program (PAX) to build our scientific knowledge of the Patuxent River ecosystem while helping to train the next generation of coastal scientists. This seminar will highlight the history of estuarine research and education on the Patuxent River, describe how PAX builds on this legacy, and present preliminary findings generated since the start of the program.

Presented by Dr. Ryan Woodland
