The Waquoit BayWatchers volunteer citizen science program has over twenty years of temperature, salinity, depth, dissolved oxygen, and chlorophyll data for Waquoit Bay. The Reserve’s Research Associate Jordan Mora has recently examined the data and detected dramatic changes in temperature and dissolved oxygen that provide compelling evidence that Waquoit Bay may be experiencing impacts from climate change as well as eutrophication from the addition of too much nitrogen to the waters stemming from wastewater, fertilizers, and the burning of fossil fuels. Join us to see what the data is revealing.
