NOAA Activity: The Stinging Sea: Ecological Forecasting of Sea Nettles in Chesapeake Bay.

Scientists predict that that as temperatures and salinity in the bay change sea nettles will become more abundant in the Chesapeake Bay. Students will explore this form of “ecological forecasting” and determine how these changes impact natural resources and human communities.
