By Land and Sea: Can Better Land Management Improve Chesapeake Bay Water Quality?

Project Title: Improving Chesapeake Bay Water Quality

Healthy and well-managed coastal areas provide local populations with everything from tasty seafood to protection from damaging storm surges. As part of the National Science Foundation’s Coastal SEES (Science, Engineering and Education for Sustainability) program, this project analyzes and measures how utilizing best land management practices impacts the water quality in three watersheds in Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay.
