MD DNR, Lora Harris and Jeremy Testa named winners in the Nutrient Sensor Action Challenge

The UMCES MD DNR team developed a plan to monitor the effects of storms and the Conowingo Dam inputs on nutrients in the Upper Chesapeake Bay.  Sensors will be places in Upper and Mid Bay regions to take real time measurements of Nitrate and Phosphate during storm events.  Sampling every two weeks allows for storm events to be easily missed.  The real time measurements will allow researchers to capture storm effects and monitor nutrient pulses and how long these added nutrients might stay in the water.
