The Fall 2020 issue of Coastwatch (NC Sea Grant magazine) features some of the long-term water quality research performed in the Paerl lab. The article, titled “Science Needs You“,  highlights the necessity for research of the second largest estuarine complex in the United States and how you can help accomplish the goal of continued research  to track the health of the Neuse River Estuary.  Whether you live locally or visit the area’s beaches or protected forests, you can make an impact to improve the land and water we enjoy!

This article features a chapter from Dr. Paerl’s water quality monitoring book, North Carolina Science Adventures for the Everyday Explorer: Thirty Great Places to Learn About Environmental Science in Our State. Check it out for other fascinating information about the Neuse River Estuary region!

Big THANKS to NC Sea Grant for highlighting our important work!
