Researchers at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science and the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science have developed a web-based, interactive computer model that allows stakeholders to better plan and implement their restoration efforts.
In a recent study, Horn Point graduate student Maureen Brooks and her UMCES co-authors Victoria Coles and Raleigh Hood showed that you need to include both ocean physics and seaweed biology in ocean modeling to understand the patterns of Sargassum we observe.
Using the Chesapeake Bay as a study site, student Marvin Li worked with Horn Point Laboratory faculty member Greg Silsbe to use advanced machine learning tools to develop a new algorithm for satellite remote sensing of coastal waters. He recenty won a prestigious $10,000 Davidson Fellows Scholarship for his work.
UMCES Chesapeake Biological Laboratory graduate students volunteered their time this summer to help 45 children in the Greenwell Foundation Fishing Camp learn about fisheries science in the Chesapeake Bay.
Kelly Pearce, Ph.D. student at the Appalachian Laboratory of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES), will soon join the faculty of Allegheny College, a national liberal arts college in Meadville, PA.
