Old Dominion University professor Dick Zimmerman and his lab are developing a new model to predict where seagrass can grow in the Bay. This article features the work of communications intern Kate Schimel and photography intern Carly Rose.
On his favorite assignment, Scott “Carly” Rose photographed a swimming pool-sized tank filled with plastic stakes that would soon be covered with oysters. Rose studies photography at Thomas Nelson Community College, and this summer he joined Virginia Sea Grant as a photography intern. During his time with VASG, Rose says he had to learn to be ready for anything, photographing portraits, events, or research cruises on any given day.
