How Do We Tackle Large Environmental Questions? Presented by Dr. Walter Boynton

Tuesday, October 24

Are the nutrients nitrogen and phosphorous a problem in the Chesapeake Bay, and if so, do we need to control one or both? What caused the massive decline of seagrasses in the 1970s? And, why should we care so much about tidal marshes and other wetlands in the Bay system? Drawing on experiences from his distinguished 42 year career at CBL, Dr. Boynton will describe how scientists investigate large-scale environmental issues. He will also discuss how scientists, managers, and citizens have, and must continue to, come together to solve complex challenges facing our Bay.
