Creighton University students visit Reserve

For nearly two weeks this May, students, faculty, and staff from the Environmental Cooperative Science Center (ECSC) and Grand Bay NERR collected field data relating to water quality, plant distribution, and optical (light) conditions throughout the Reserve in conjunction with Worldview 2 satellite imagery collection.  These data, along with long-term monitoring information collected by NERR staff, will be used for a variety of upcoming projects.  For example, a detailed vegetation map will be developed for tidal marsh areas of the Reserve. Information from these projects are critical to planning future research efforts and developing management plans.
