Research Projects

Our diverse research portfolio includes a groundbreaking circulation study, bio-monitoring of toxins in caged mussels, aerial mapping/GIS plotting of aquatic vegetation and land use over time, and bald eagle egg assays.

Water Quality

Our volunteers annually monitor a variety of water quality measures, including dissolved oxygen, fecal coliform, and pH, at over a dozen sites on Merrymeeting Bay and its tributaries.
