Chesapeake Water Watch

The Chesapeake Water Watch is a joint project between the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) and the City College of New York (CCNY). Our researchers are developing new ways to use remote sensing to fill in water monitoring gaps. We are partnering with Riverkeepers and individuals like you to collect data with simple-to-use scientific equipment and smartphone applications.
