Science -- Gulf Dead Zone Larger Than Thought

Scientists now expect a 4500 square mile dead zone in the Gulf rather than the 1500 square mile zone predicted by NOAA.  Link: CBS News | Gulf Dead Zone Larger Than Thought | August 2, 2005�12:00:22.  But the good news, also from NOAA, is that we expect more severe storms (up to 14 more named storms) by November.   That may stir up the gulf and shrink the dead zone a bit.
