From the Field: Chesapeake Bay Interpretive Buoy System

July 08, 2015

Ten buoys comprise the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association’s Chesapeake Bay Interpretive Buoy System, and it is up to buoy engineer Katie Kirk and the CBIBS team to keep the yellow, sensor-laden buoys up and running. The buoys mark points along the Captain John Smith Chesapeake Historic Trail, and deliver data used by a wide variety of users, from sailors to scientists. Find real-time information on weather and water conditions at buoybay.noaa.gov/ or by calling (877) 286-9229.
