EcoCheck 2008 Summer Review
EcoCheck (NOAA-UMCES Partnership) recently released the 2008 Summer Review via the EcoCheck website. Summer conditions in 2008 were variable. Despite high flows providing nutrient inputs in early spring, mainstem anoxic waters were average. There were several significant harmful bloom events and fish kills. Additionally, water clarity continued to be poor this year. Summer conditions were compared to the ecological forecasts of dissolved oxygen, Microcystis blooms, and Prorocentrum blooms that were made in June 2008. As in previous years, ecological forecasts had variable success.

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