Annual winter-spring nitrogen loads for the Susquehanna and Potomac Rivers, 1985 to 2018

Winter-spring nitrogen loads as measured at the Susquehanna River at Conowingo Maryland and Potomac River at Washington, D.C. have been determined to be an effective indicator of summer anoxic and hypoxic volume in Chesapeake Bay. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) provides an estimate of winter-spring nitrogen loadings to support an annual forecast of summer Chesapeake Bay conditions. The s...
