About this session: How will a changing climate impact the Chesapeake Bay watershed, and all of the people and creatures that call this place home? In this session, Bill Boicourt, Professor Emeritus at University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, will explore current understandings from climate science research to help participants better understand the changes happening throughout the region, from increasing river flow, to rising sea levels, to impacts on the atmosphere, the forests, and the creatures that live in the Bay.
About the series: With climate change a global reality, the Chesapeake is one of the most vulnerable areas to warming temperatures, rising sea levels, and increased storm intensities. This series explores the connection between science and culture, looking at how communities are adapting to build climate resilience.
