Chesapeake Bay Dead Zone

Posted on Updated on

The Chesapeake Bay Program summarized the results of a study on nutrient loading in the Chesapeake Bay on their site last week. The study, by Yuntao Zhou, Donald Scavia, and Anna M. Michalak, found that the Chesapeake Bay’s annual dead zone’s size and severity has remained unchanged in recent years, the duration of the dead zone, however, has declined over time. The report in Limnology and Oceanography also examines the role of meteorological factors in the development of dead zones.
