Chesapeake Bay Summer Forecast 2012
In collaboration with IAN and EcoCheck, researchers at the University of Michigan have forecasted the July hypoxic volume of the mainstem Chesapeake Bay for the sixth year. The July 2012 hypoxic volume is forecasted to be 6.4 km3, which is considered slightly below average. Unusual patterns in streamflow meant there were lower than normal total nitrogen loads from the Susquehanna River in the spring. Loads are the main driver of the forecast model.

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