Multimedia

USGS translates our science from reports and journal articles, and engages stakeholders, to inform restoration and conservation decisions across the Chesapeake watershed. Multimedia information includes geologic maps, and from publications, videos, and Geonarratives that provide stories and maps about selected findings.

Phosphate discharged from the Susquehanna River to the Chesapeake Bay could be derived, in part, by desorption from legacy sediments accumulated in impoundments along the lower reaches of the river owing to increasing pH of the river water over recent decades.

The Chesapeake Bay is one of the Nation's largest ecosystem restoration efforts, so monitoring to assess changes in condition is crucial. The USGS is monitoring the status and trends of key indicators for the health of streams and rivers in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
