Collaborative Science in the Chowan River area

PhD student Haley Plaas worked with Chowan-Edenton Environmental Group to sample a recent bloom on the Chowan River.  Big thanks to this local community science group!

Felix Evans Honor Thesis

For her honors thesis Felix prepares  a bioassay where she  hopes to determine a relationship between harmful algal bloom formation and changes to salinity in the Chowan River of coastal North Carolina, in light of climate change-driven changes to hydrologic event patterns.
