One of Dr. Tyrrell’s first orders of business when she joined the Reserve this past fall, was to analyze the wealth of over 20 years of water quality monitoring data the Reserve has collected. She has discovered  trends in temperature, salinity, and dissolved oxygen that could have implications for seagrass and harmful algal blooms as well as fish and crabs in the bay.
