Abstract

This data repository is a permanent archive of the results presented in the associated publication: Frankel et al., 2022, Nitrogen reductions have decreased hypoxia in the Chesapeake Bay: Evidence from empirical and numerical modeling, Science of the Total Environment, accepted for publication in December 2021.

Description

The files contained in this data repository are in the NetCDF format (see https://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/ ). These files are self-documented and include all the metadata necessary for their interpretation, including the dimensions, units, spatial and temporal information relative to the data. NetCDF is the standard format of the ocean modeling community and NetCDF files can be manipulated and displayed by a wide range of freely available open source software (see link above for more information). The scientific methods associated with this dataset are thoroughly described in the associated publication (Frankel et al. 2022).

The results are representative of the following geographical area: 36-40°N and 75-78°W (Chesapeake Bay).
