“Detecting Climate Change in Chesapeake Bay” is a Public-Private Research and Educational Effort in 2017

“Detecting  Climate Change in Chesapeake Bay” is an effort by several public and private partners to document local, recognizable impacts of climate change in the Chesapeake region and to inform people about them.  The Web site for the effort, online at http://www.chesapeakedata.com/changingchesapeake/, states that it is a “public/private partnership [among] the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserves, the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, and Chesapeake Environmental Communications [to] use local data to define the links between climate change and environmental impacts to Chesapeake Bay.”  Scientists participating in the effort have examined 114 years of data from Bay locations in Virginia and Maryland.
