While We Were Away...

Oceanus Magazine, an online publication of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, has a useful primer on the importance of estuaries.

Scientists in Rhode Island are baffled by the lobster shell disease that is killing up to half the area’s lobsters. From the Providence Journal.

A research assistant at Brown makes the case for cleaning up Narragensett Bay.

Connecticut Fund for the Environment, which merged last September with Save the Sound, is now working with Restore America’s Estuaries on Long Island Sound projects. The New London Day published what sounds suspiciously like a press release.

New York and Connecticut want to find someplace other than the Sound to dump dredge spoils. From Newsday.

Lee Koppleman dismisses the argument that it is unacceptable to put a huge industrial facility like Broadwater’s LNG terminal in the middle of the Sound because the Sound is already industrialized. Funny, but I haven’t noticed any factories halfway between the Long Island shore and the Connecticut shore.
