Abstract

Monthly cool-season salinity over the period 1958 to 1991 period is analyzed for the Chesapeake Bay (CB), and the salinity variations are associated with low-frequency 500 hPa flow variations and with extremes of the Southern Oscillation (SO). Results identify a significant decrease in mean CB surface salinity. As the SO is responsible for such a large portion of interannual climate variability worldwide, it is important to establish a baseline relationship for CB salinity so that El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) forecasts may be used by planners and ecologists in the CB area to mitigate ENSO impacts
