Better than average conditions are forecast for summer 2013.
Chesapeake Bay dissolved oxygen forecast for summer 2013
For the past several years, Chesapeake Bay scientists have collaborated with the Integration and Application Network to forecast Chesapeake Bay summer dissolved oxygen conditions, based on flow and nutrient loading conditions through May. Ecological forecasts provide resource managers with information that can be used to guide restoration, enable proactive communication of Bay conditions, and help direct research activities. The average summer (June to September) hypoxia forecast predicts better than average conditions for 2013. This forecast is based on Susquehanna River flow (January to May) and wind direction and speed across the Bay.

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