The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) organizes the Annapolis Café Scientifique—a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology.
There is never a cover charge for Café Scientifique!
Please note: seating is limited.
Reservations are strongly suggested and sometimes required depending on attendance. Please call (410) 626-9796 to guarantee your seat or, just as importantly, to cancel your reservation so someone on the waitlist may attend.
Future climate change will likely alter the Chesapeake Bay in numerous ways, such as expanding hypoxic zones and creating more acidic waters. Determining how fishes will respond to the Bay of the future is critical not only for fisheries management but also for our understanding of estuarine ecology.
