M.A.D. for Marshes

The Margaret A. Davidson Graduate Fellowship is a new NOAA program that provides funding to graduate students to conduct estuarine research within one of the 29 reserves in the National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS). CBNERR-VA will support Derek Detweiler, its first Davidson Fellow, as mentors, scientists and community liaisons in his research and related outreach on the tidal marsh carbon cycle.
