The NOAA Chesapeake Bay Interpretive Buoy System (CBIBS) is
the only real-time, in situ, continuous monitoring network
operating in the Bay, providing meteorological, oceanographic, and water
quality data to a variety of marine users. Used by fishermen, ferry
boat captains, educators, and forecasters, this ten-buoy system is
helping us to understand the Bay's changing conditions. Come find out
about how NOAA is working to connect new and existing users to the
system using traditional media (phone and website) and newer media
(smart phone applications and Facebook™).
