USGS measures spring flooding at Chesapeake bay's largest tributary

A USGS field team measures spring floodwaters at Chesapeake bay's largest tributary.

Detailed Description

A USGS field team, to include Pat Bowen, Kate Bowen and John Trainor, uses specialized equipment to measure spring floodwaters at Chesapeake Bay's largest tributary, the Susquehanna River in Maryland.

At this site, the team has an interesting strategy to deal with conflicts between sample-collection protocols and Covid-19 safe-distancing recommendations. Pat and Kate are married, so they can safely work together, while John maintains a safe distance at the helm.
