Delmarva Coastal Bays Workshop

 previous story | next story

On March 29th, approximately 14 people participated in a workshop on Delmarva Coastal Bays held at the USGS Baltimore Office. The workshop was organized by Bob Shedlock (USGS Baltimore) and included representatives from Assateague Island National Seashore, Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Maryland Geological Survey, and Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.

The purpose was to coordinate various USGS and National Park Service field activities that will occur over the next several months. Participants discussed the growing understanding of the geologic controls on groundwater discharge to the coastal bays system and other nutrient cycling issues in the bays.

Attendees from the Coastal and Marine Program included John Bratton (WHFC) and Frank Manheim (Reston), who showed results of electrical resistivity and Hover-probe coring studies in Delaware and Maryland. Other USGS presenters included Jon Dillow (WRD, Baltimore/nutrient-related water quality), Earl Greene (WRD, Baltimore/model simulations of discharge), and David Krantz (WRD, Delaware/field evidence of discharge including aerial infrared imaging).

Carl Zimmerman from the National Park Service presented an open seminar during the lunch hour entitled "Science and Resource Management at Assateague Island National Seashore," featuring a variety of issues including rare birds and plants, beach replenishment, hurricane wash-over, and pony contraception. The meeting provided an opportunity to compare preliminary data sets collected within the last few years on shore, on the water, and from the air, and to plan science and funding strategies for future work that would benefit all parties involved.
