Scientists Reveal Bay Secrets in Video Web Series

Scientists from the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES) are featured in a YouTube series running throughout July called "Discovering the Chesapeake."

This month, viewers meet a professor and student at Horn Point Laboratory, who talk about jellyfish and how they forecast when jellies will arrive in the Bay. Later in July, an oceanographer explains how she can determine the impact of climate change on the Bay.

Professor Raleigh Hood and graduate student Jacqueline Tay take viewers into the world of jellyfish.


June's episodes taught viewers about the disappearance and resurgence of sea grasses, and also what makes the Bay different from other nearby watersheds.
