MD DNR Water Quality Mapping Project 2011

Record describes one year of an on-going water quality monitoring project. A total of forty-nine mapping cruises were conducted on Maryland water bodies.Seven water quality parameters were measured: water temperature, salinity, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, fluorescence and pH. Water depth was also measured. Water was sampled at approximately 0.5-m depths below the surface./p> Data Source: […]

Segmentation and Reach Simulation

An application of the Hydrologic Simulation Program-Fortran (HSPF). The segmentation scheme divides the Chesapeake Bay watershed into approximately 1,000 segments/subbasins, with the average size about 64 square miles. About 280 monitoring stations throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed were used for calibration of hydrology, while approximately 200 monitoring stations were used to calibrate water quality, depending […]
