2007 Chesapeake Bay summer ecological forecast
In collaboration with the Chesapeake Bay Program, EcoCheck (NOAA-UMCES Partnership) has produced the Chesapeake Bay summer ecological forecast for the third year. The EcoCheck forecast website and newsletter describe forecasts of three important Bay health indicators–dissolved oxygen (DO), harmful algal blooms (HABs), and changes in aquatic grass distribution. This summer it is predicted that (1) amount of anoxia (no dissolved oxygen) will be moderate in the Bay's mainstem and small in the Rappahannock River, (2) the extent and duration of HABs in the Potomac River will be average, and (3) aquatic grasses in the northern Bay, lower Potomac River, and Tangier Sound will undergo no or minimal recovery from losses sustained last year. For further information, visit the Chesapeake Bay Program and EcoCheck bay forecast pages.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
