Episode 1 - Oyster Reefs and Coastal Protection

In this episode, we learn about oyster reefs and their role in protecting coastlines from retreat. Have you ever wondered how oyster reef restoration works? Or how reefs interact with nearby salt marshes? We talked to Sara Hogan, a graduate student at the University of Virginia, who uses innovative remote sensing techniques to map reefs and inform restoration efforts. Learn about the connections between salt marshes, oysters, lasers, and legos (!?) in our interview with Sara!
