posted in: Chesapeake Bay News | 0

The CBIBS field and technical team, in collaboration with partners from NOAA Sanctuaries and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS), recently deployed a CBIBS buoy at York Spit, at the mouth of the York River. The buoy was deployed in the York on July 18 from the nearby VIMS boat basin.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Chesapeake Bay Interpretive Buoy System (CBIBS) is a network of observing platforms (buoys) that collect meteorological, oceanographic, and water-quality data and relay that information using wireless technology to a variety of users.

The latest data from key points up and down the Bay is available at buoybay.noaa.gov, by calling toll-free 877-BUOY-BAY (877-286-9229), or via apps available for Android and iPhone smartphones.
