This year marks the start of the UN Decade for Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. This exciting program seeks to conduct the science we need for the oceans we want. Involvement of government, academic and citizen scientists is strongly encouraged – and we are seeing involvement of groups who have not been traditionally represented in these discussions. This talk will review initiatives the US is considering as its contributions and evaluate whether we are doing the science we need for the Chesapeake Bay we want.
Presented by Dr. Tom Miller
