- The Chesapeake Bay Operational Forecast System (CBOFS) Oceanographic nowcasts and forecast guidance are scientific predictions about the present and future states of a water body (generally including water levels, currents, water temperature and salinity). These predictions rely on either observed data or forecasts from large-scale numerical models.

The Chesapeake Bay - America's largest estuary, with a watershed that reaches into seven states - will be profoundly affected by climate change. The nature and severity of those effects will, in turn, be influenced by human activities such as agriculture, land development and chemical emissions.

boundary conditions from the Chesapeake Flood forecast system and the wave spectrum is derived from the Wavewatch 3 model. The model is automated to ingest the boundary information and produce the wave and water level forecasts in at out study sites in the Chesapeake Bay. The model documentation can be found at:
˜e Chesapeake Bay Forecast System (CBFS), now under development at the University of Maryland (UMD) Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC), is a ﬂexible, end-to-end expert prediction tool for decision- makers that will provide customizable, user-speciﬁed
The Chesapeake Bay Forecast Modeling System is a new pilot program that can answer these questions. By monitoring key indicators of Bay health and analyzing massive sets of climate data, researchers at the University of Maryland are developing a multivariate model for predicting local ecological, meteorological, and oceanic events. To develop
The Chesapeake Bay Forecast System (CBFS) is a flexible, end-to-end expert prediction tool for decision-makers that will provide customizable, user-specified forecasts showing multiple aspects of the Chesapeake region's climate, air and water quality, local chemistry and ecosystems months into the future.
Another example is the Chesapeake Bay Operational Forecast System (CBOFS) which is run every 6 hours by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and is used primarily for forecasting water levels for navigation, but is also used to evaluate the chance of encountering stinging jellyfish (NOAA, 2020a).
