More than 50 billion gallons of fresh water flow into the Chesapeake Bay every day from 100,000 rivers and streams. A new study finds that water temperatures in those tributaries have risen half a degree per decade since 1960. We explore why seemingly slight fluctuations upstream can have major impacts on the Bay and its wildlife.
