A University of Virginia Research Collaboration

Marine Science Research for Virginia Coastal Resilience

We are a group of environmental scientists in the Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia, many of whom have been working collaboratively on seagrass ecosystems for over two decades. Our research is focused on the seagrass ecosystems in the Virginia coastal bays as part of the Virginia Coast Reserve Long Term Ecological Research program.
