Continuous water-quality data are collected in streams like War Branch (pictured) using sondes, which are mounted to submerged in-stream structures like the one pictured here. These structures are constructed out of metal u-channel posts, and the data cables which connect to the sondes are protected by PVC pipes.

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.

Along the Atlantic Coast, a 2000+ ft deep hole has been drilled by the USGS to assess the issues of groundwater pumping, relative sea-level rise, and land subsidence. This video shows the drilling of the first extensometer to measure land subsidence in the North Atlantic Coastal Plain in 30+ years.
