  3. Science for Citizens Seminar: A View into the Secret Lives of Animals on the Swim

    March 28, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Chesapeake Biological Laboratory Bernie Fowler Lab

    Join us at the oldest state-supported marine lab on the East Coast to learn about innovative research being pioneered by CBL scientists. Our faculty and graduate students are developing new approaches to solving the environmental management problems facing Calvert County, our nation, and the world. Each talk will be presented by an UMCES scientist and will inform the public about a featured research effort. As gravity-bound, flat-land primates, we struggle to fully imagine the fluid lives of fish, marine mammals, and birds as they push and pull their way through a three-dimensional aqueous realm. Through observing systems and telemetry, scientists are discovering marvelous adaptations in how marine animals contend with seawater, which both opposes and leverages locomotion as animals swim, dive, lunge, or simply stay put. In this talk Dr. Dave Secor will review the mechanics and behaviors of marine animals as they school, feed, migrate, and persevere.

  4. Science for Citizens Seminar: DolphinWatch: Dolphins in the Chesapeake Bay

    March 28, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Chesapeake Biological Laboratory

    Join us at the oldest state-supported marine lab on the East Coast to learn about innovative research being pioneered by CBL scientists. Our faculty and graduate students are developing new approaches to solving the environmental management problems facing Calvert County, our nation, and the world. Each talk will be presented by an UMCES scientist and will inform the public about a featured research effort. Little is known about how often dolphins come into the Chesapeake Bay, how long they spend there, what areas of the Bay they are using and why. Dr. Helen Bailey and her team at the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory have been frequently detecting dolphin calls in the Bay. They are now working to develop an observation network that will provide information on dolphin distribution and encourage local residents to report their sightings and learn more about these animals.
