What's Up With The Water in Waquoit Bay?
Research at the Reserve Coffee House Series
One of Dr. Tyrrell’s first orders of business when she joined the Reserve this past fall, was to conduct preliminary analysis of some of the over twenty years of weather and water quality monitoring data the Reserve has collected. She will present trends in temperature, salinity, and dissolved oxygen that could have implications for seagrass and harmful algal blooms. She will also examine wind and precipitation patterns that may affect the growth of salt marsh vegetation. Come meet our new Research Coordinator and hear what she’s found out about what’s going on in our local waters.
