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™).


Andrew Larkin began working for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in 1997 where he has worked in a variety of policy and communications positions. He is currently working as a communications and outreach specialist for the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office and the NOAA National Ocean Service. During his time at NOAA, he was detailed to work on the staff of U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg and to the White House Council on Environmental Quality. He received his J.D. from the College of William and Mary School of Law and his B.A. in political science from the University of Florida.
