Chesapeake Water Watch

Volunteer Monitoring Opportunity!

Researchers at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center are developing new ways to assess water quality in the Chesapeake Bay. They are partnering with Riverkeepers and individuals collecting data with simple-to-use scientific equipment and applications on their smartphone. The information collected will help researchers understand the extent to which we can use satellite data to monitor water quality data from space. This will not only help to assess the health of Chesapeake Bay but eventually of coastal waters around the world!
