Storm Timing and Impacts on Chesapeake Bay Flora and Fauna The timing of tropical storms and hurricanes can have major impacts on the life histories of Chesapeake Bay flora and fauna. Changes in water salinity can cause early spawning in some species, such as the blue crab, and increased sediment can cause widespread die-off of seagrasses.   diagram,eco-rythm,storms,chesapeake,tropical,hurricanes,early,migration,timing

Chilika Lake Pollution Pressure As land use in the Chilika Lake area changes from forest to settlements and paddy agriculture sewage, and fertilizer and pesticides runoff increases into the Lake. This extra nutrient input results in algae blooms that float and sit on the bottom.  diagram,pollution,chilika,lake,runoff,pressure,agriculture,algae,blooms,sewage,pesticides,extra,nutrient,input

Chilika Lake Sedimentation During monsoon season excess sediment is deposited in Chilika Lake, mostly from Mahanadi River tributaries, nearby settlements, and agricultural lands. As the Lake becomes more shallow and its sea outlets fill in with sediment, increased flooding occurs.      diagram,sediment,flooding,excess,monsoon,chilika,lake,sedimentation,shallow

Light and Dark Conditions Impact on Submerged Aquatic Vegetation Growth Excess nutrients will result in increased chlorophyll and turbidity, limiting the amount of light that reaches benthic sediment. Light is essential for healthy submerged aquatic vegetation growth. Diagram from "New Insights" (p.30)- http://ian.umces.edu/pdfs/ian_report_438.pdf

Counteracting Factors Impacting Best Management Practice Implementation  Improvements in water quality can be counteracted by changes in nutrient sources and land-use practices. Increased nutrient loads from stormwater and intensified agriculture often overwhelm the positive effects of best management practices. diagram,counteracting,factors,best,management,practices,water,quality,improvement,challenges

permeable pavers Permeable pavers are brick-like materials that are manufactured in a variety of shapes. Pavers fit together like tiles and are set with small gaps between them, creating grooves for water to infiltrate the soil beneath. Permeable pavers reduce stormwater runoff volume and flow rate, and increase groundwater infiltration and recharge. best management practice,stormwater management,pollutant discharge,elimination,green,landscape

Sea-level Rise and Storm Surges on Barrier Islands Conceptual diagram illustrating the effects of sea-level rise and storm surges on barrier islands. When sea-level rise combines with strong storms, barrier islands experience high storm surges, which increases the effects of flooding and erosion.

Cages protect seabeach amaranth (Amaranthus pumilus) from grazing A sensitive species, seabeach amaranth is aided at Assateague Island National Seashore by a management program that protects a portion of the annual population from being eaten and trampled by horses and deer so they can mature and produce seeds. Conservation efforts have helped the plant population increase to nearly 2,200 individuals in 2007. plant,native,endangered,Maryland,beach,overwash
