Enhancing the Chesapeake Bay report card with new indicators and new methods

Enhancing the Chesapeake Bay report card with new indicators and new methods

New indicators and new methods of analysis are being explored in the 2012 Chesapeake Bay report card. For the past six years, the Chesapeake Bay report card has included three water quality and three biotic indicators. In 2012, five water quality and two biotic indicators will be averaged into the Bay Health Index. Three fisheries indicators have also been evaluated and will be presented separately from the Bay Health Index. Flow adjusted scores and trajectories (Is the Bay getting better or worse?) will be discussed. All these new analyzes help to provide a complete story of Chesapeake Bay health in 2012.
