  • Ecologists are forecasting a large Chesapeake Bay “dead zone” in 2019 due to well-above-average river flows associated with increased rainfall in the watershed since last fall. The predicted volumes are larger than the summer 2018 dead zone and could be among the four largest in the past 20 years.

  • How exactly is climate change affecting the Indian Ocean? 40 marine scientists are currently on International Indian Ocean Expedition-2 retracing the path of a 60-year-old research expedition to find out. These researchers will be measuring how the physics, chemistry and biology of the waters have changed as a result of climate change.

  • The Chesapeake DolphinWatch app is back for the 2019 summer season! Bottlenose dolphins are frequently spotted in the Chesapeake Bay but very little is known about how often dolphins actually come into the Bay, how long they spend there, what areas of the Bay they are using and why.

    Learn how you can become a citizen scientist this summer and help us track dolphins in the Chesapeake Bay:
