Science & Research
Restoration projects throughout the Inland Bays is guided by scientific research conducted by the CIB and its partners at DNREC, the University of Delaware Citizen Monitoring Program, and UD scientists. These projects range from continuous monitoring of bay health indicators, to the investigation of individual solutions to pollution (like specialized cover crops on farm fields).
The Center itself serves as a key link in the research process by helping to communicate results to the public, resource managers, and elected officials and the Center’s Scientific & Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) provides a forum for presentation and discussion of the information that is used to advise the Center’s Board of Directors.
