Determining whether estuaries and tidal wetlands are net emitters or absorbers of carbon dioxide is the object of a NASA-funded study by a national team of researchers. The three-year, $1.2-million study, led by Penn State professor of oceanography Raymond Najjar, is the first to look at the entire contiguous U.S. estuarine and tidal-wetland system, and the team will establish a long-term, baseline carbon budget over the past several decades—the period for which most coastal carbon data have been collected.

He does this by using old shooting records as data, under the assumption that the number of grouse killed annually is proportional to the size of that year's population. His goal is to create a mathematical formula that takes any year's population as input and gives the next year's population as output.

ANNAPOLIS -- The Maryland Department of Natural Resources on Monday released the 2015 Blue Crab Winter Dredge Survey results, which showed the abundance of spawning-age females was 101 million, a substantial rise from 2014 when adult females were considered depleted. Despite the increase, the number of adult females remains well below the peak abundances observed in 2010 and 2011 and below the established target level of 215 million crabs.
