NOAA, partners forecast 'dead zone' conditions in Gulf of Mexico, Chesapeake Bay
July 10, 2014 -- According to new research, scientists are expecting an average but still large hypoxic zone, or "dead zone," in the Gulf of Mexico this year, as well as a slightly above-average hypoxia in the Chesapeake Bay. While close to averages since the late 1990s, these hypoxic zones are many times larger than what research has shown them to be prior to the significant human influences that greatly expanded their sizes and effects.
