Chesapeake Reflections: What We’ve Learned During the Past 50 Years and Where We Need to Go in the Future

Tuesday, November 15, 2022 from 7:00pm – 8:00pm
Presented by Dr. Walter Boynton

Dr. Walter Boynton, Professor Emeritus at UMCES Chesapeake Biological Laboratory, is an internationally recognized expert in estuarine science and restoration. Throughout his career, he has experienced the pleasures and challenges of trying to better understand how these wonderful estuaries work, what causes serious degradation to water quality and habitats and what we might expect from past and continuing restoration efforts. In this seminar, Dr. Boynton will use examples from the past 50 years of his career to bring these important issues to life.

Located where the Patuxent River meets the Chesapeake Bay, the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory is the oldest publicly supported marine laboratory on the East Coast. Founded in 1925, it has been a national leader in fisheries, estuarine ecology, environmental chemistry and toxicology for more than 90 years. Our scientists conduct research from the Chesapeake Bay and around the globe.  From advising state and national agencies on sustainable fisheries management and breaking new ground in understanding how chemicals move between the atmosphere, sediments, and water to renowned work on nutrient dynamics and the food web, the lab is developing new scientific approaches to solving the major environmental problems that face our world.
