IAN and EcoCheck (NOAA-UMCES Partnership) in collaboration with the Chesapeake Bay Program and some of its partners (e.g. MD DNR) have just released the 2006 summer ecological forecast. Forecasts of Chesapeake Bay mainstem anoxic volume, harmful algal blooms in the Potomac River, and changes in aquatic grass cover over the summer period are provided. This is the second year that the forecast has been provided, with relatively accurate forecasts provided last year. A newsletter that summarizes the forecast can be found at the EcoCheck website.
