Chesapeake Bay

The health of the Chesapeake Bay largely is driven by changes in streamflow and the amount of pollution it contains. Runoff in the Chesapeake Bay watershed carries pollutants, such as nutrients and sediments, to rivers and streams that drain to the Bay. Scientists can use estimated streamflow entering the Chesapeake Bay to assess the health of the Bay and make ecological forecasts.
