Science for Citizens "Hold Your Breath and Keep Swimming: Advances in our Understanding of the Chesapeake Dead Zone"

Event Date: 
October 20, 2015 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Low-oxygen areas, often referred to as “Dead Zones” in the popular media, are unwelcome yet common features of estuaries worldwide that have generally expanded in space and time during the past century. We invite you to a presentation describing the rich history of research related to the “Dead Zone” in Chesapeake Bay, with an emphasis on new insights into what controls the size of the dead zone, how its size has varied in past, and what we should expect in future decades. All seminars are free and open to the public. Light snacks and beverages will be provided. Please contact Sarah Brzezinski at 410-326-7460, or with any questions.
