Plant Geography And Water Quality Data For Chesapeake Bay Waters Of Virginia's Eastern Shore, John C. Munday Jr., Paul L. Zubkoff, J. Ernest Warinner Iii, Elvira Ferrez-Reyes, Hayden H. Gordon, Kenneth A. Moore Sep 1978

Plant Geography And Water Quality Data For Chesapeake Bay Waters Of Virginia's Eastern Shore, John C. Munday Jr., Paul L. Zubkoff, J. Ernest Warinner Iii, Elvira Ferrez-Reyes, Hayden H. Gordon, Kenneth A. Moore

Reports

Plant geography and water quality data were collected in shallow water near Cape Charles and Occohannock Creek, Virginia on two occasions. Data from April, 1978 included hydrography, distribution and abundance of -submerged aquatic vegetation, phytoplankton census, and water clarity data. Data from May, 1978 included hydrography, phytoplankton census, water clarity, and primary productivity data. The May data collection was coincident with an overflight of the NASA JSC C-130 aircraft (6600 m) acquiring color infrared photography and multispectral scanner data; cell concentrations reached 105/ml, chlorophyll~ 72 pg/1, and suspended sediment 94 mg/1. i

Chesapeake Bay Baseline Data Acquisition Appendix I: A Chesapeake Bay Directory, Chesapeake Research Consortium, Incorporated

Reports

This directory is the updated version of the Mitre Corporation directory compiled in September 1976 for the staff of the Chesapeake Bay Program, Region III, Environmental Protection Agency. It identifies, by name, address, and telephone number, academic researchers, administrators, institutions, agencies, interest groups, consulting organizations, and other entities concerned with the water quality of the Chesapeake Bay and related water matters. It is current as of February 1978 and should be revised periodically to incorporate changes in personnel and organization structure.

Operation Hiflow '78, Rappahannock River Estuary, Virginia, March-April 1978 : An Investigation Of Sediment Influx And Hydrodynamics, Institutions Of The Chesapeake Research Consortium And Sea Grant Programs

Reports

The prime purposes of HIFLOW 78 are to determine: 1. The response of an estuarine system to high river inflow and influx of suspended sediment. 2. The hydrodynamic interactions between a major tributary estuary and the main body of the Chesapeake Bay.


Final Report On Environmental Effect Of Subaqueous Sand Fill Acquisition On The Benthic Communities Of Hampton Bar, James River, Virginia, Robert J. Diaz, Donald F. Boesch Jan 1978

Final Report On Environmental Effect Of Subaqueous Sand Fill Acquisition On The Benthic Communities Of Hampton Bar, James River, Virginia, Robert J. Diaz, Donald F. Boesch

Reports

The Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Company was granted permission to obtain sand fill from the east end of Hampton Basin Hampton Roads, Virginia for the expansion of their waterfront facilities. A clamshell dredge operated from February to July 1974 and removed a total of 597,055 cu yds of material before breaking down. In August 1974 a hydraulic dredge took over the operation and by February 1975 had removed 899,386 cu yds for total removal of 1,495,410 cu yds.

In order to assess the environmental effects of this project a program of sampling benthic organisms was ...


Evaluation Of Salinity And Temperature As Stress Factors Affecting The Enumeration Of Fecal Coliforms By The Electrochemical Detection Method, Howard I. Kator, Martha W. Rhodes Jan 1978

Evaluation Of Salinity And Temperature As Stress Factors Affecting The Enumeration Of Fecal Coliforms By The Electrochemical Detection Method, Howard I. Kator, Martha W. Rhodes

Reports

The ability of an electrochemical detection method to predict viable numbers of fecal coliforms was evaluated under laboratory conditions with respect to seawater adjusted to various salinities and temperatures. The viability of an Escherchia coli isolat~ as measured by the spread plate technique utilizing non-selective media was unaffected after 12 wk exposure at 2°C and 25 °100 salinity. At higher temperatures (15-30°C) both the total decrease in cell numbers as well as the rates of die-off were greater than at 2°C. There was little apparent difference in viability across the temperature range 15-30°C. Viability was observed ...

Demonstration Project In Low-Cost Shoreline Erosion Control : Final Report To County Administrator, County Of Accomack, Virginia, Gary L. Anderson, Robert L. Byrne, David W. Byrd, Gary M. Chianakas Jan 1978

Demonstration Project In Low-Cost Shoreline Erosion Control : Final Report To County Administrator, County Of Accomack, Virginia, Gary L. Anderson, Robert L. Byrne, David W. Byrd, Gary M. Chianakas

Reports

·1ow cost erosion control structures were installed at ten shoreline sites located in the lower Chesapeake Bay and on the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers to further test the applicability of the perched beach concept under diverse littoral environments. The perched beach is achieved via installation of a low sill parallel to the shoreline. The objective of the sill is to provide a partial barrier behind which an elevated (perched) beach is accreted. When successful, ~he perched beach backshore and foreshore acts to reduce the frequency of direct wave attack against the fastland and thereby reducing the erosion rate. In this ...
