The Gathering Storm:
Flooding the Chesapeake Bay
Presented by Dr. William Boicourt
The enclosed nature of Chesapeake Bay protects us from most hurricanes moving from the tropics up the east coast. But for certain storms, such as Isabel in 2003, the Bay area is especially vulnerable. Recognizing that hurricanes are heat engines that feed off warm ocean temperatures is leading toward improvements in forecast warnings. As our surface waters in the ocean warm, the present understanding leads scientists to predict fewer hurricanes in the coming years. But when they come, they are going to be intense.
