Are Conditions Right For A Bad Month On The Sound?

The hot weather, and the fact that it can be a precursor of poor water quality, is starting to concern those who work on Long Island Sound. The Greenwich Time has a report today. There’s no real news in it but it’s good to know someone is paying attention.

Hey Tom, I've been doing some research on saltwater hypoxia in Texas, as it compares to the Chesapeake, Sarasota Bay, and Long Island. It turns out to be a very complex thing, a mixture of biotic and abiotic processes. At the end of the day I would agree that nitrogen loading and heat can be a "smoking gun" but there is no single, true cause. Lack of sea grass is a big one.
