I am preparing for National Estuaries Day. September 17-24th is National Estuaries Week with September 24th marking National Estuaries Day.
Many of the National Estuarine Research Reserves have some type of activity or social media campaign for this week to celebrate how great estuaries are and bring some attention to why we need to restore, protect, and maintain these colorful wetlands.
Flashback to last year at the Horn Point Open House when we displayed two of our climate indices as a massive timeline and asked visitors to tell us stories about memorable events or see if anything notable happened on their birthday month.
That image got a few of my Delaware NERR colleagues talking about how we could incorporate that timeline into our National Estuaries Day event in Dover. So I made one using a time series from the Dover Air Force Base. I hope to include a “zoom-in” box of our SWMP data soon!
