What’s Mud Got To Do With It?
November 2, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
From dams to sea grass beds, and how mud quality affects the Chesapeake Bay…
Our speaker, Emily Russ, will give a historical overview of sediment delivery from the Susquehanna River, and the impact of the Conowingo Dam upon the Susquehanna River and Chesapeake Bay. She addresses the current state of knowledge around the Dam, and what her lab group is doing to better understand how the infilling of the Conowingo Dam will impact the Bay. The sea grass beds on the Susquehanna Flats will be discussed – its history, and how it impacts sediment input to the Bay.
