Weather extremes lead to typical conditions

This newsletter addresses the extreme weather conditions that the Bay area experienced during the spring and summer of 2006 and how these weather conditions affected the summer ecological forecast that was released in May 2006 and other aspects of Bay health. The forecast focuses on dissolved oxygen in the mainstem, harmful algal blooms in the Potomac River and aquatic grasses in three locations in the Bay. Scientists have been tracking these conditions through the summer to provide an assessment of summer conditions and to evaluate the forecast.
