Steps to Identifying High Priority Tributaries  Ranking tributaries by water quality, then by diffuse nitrogen sources can help to determine which watersheds are high priority. High priority watersheds are those responsible for proportionally more nutrient and sediment inputs to receiving waters than other watersheds.

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

Conowingo Dam Reservoir and Susquehanna Flats Depiction In the section of the river above the dam builds up with sediment, making the dam shallower. High water flow causes scouring and the transport of sediment and associated nutrients over the dam.  On this other side of the dam phosphorus mobilizes in reaction with salt water.  Further down the river seagrass beds grow on the Susquehanna flats.    diagram,conowingo,dam,susquehanna,flats,sediment,deposition,scouring,sediment,transport,nutrients

Badlands National Park Badlands National Park sits upon highly erodible sedimentary rocks that form distinctive pinnacles, gullies and spires. Threats to the park include illegal fossiling and the invasion of weeds and non-native grasses.

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

Coastal Wetlands Resilience to Climate Change Comparison Coastal wetlands that are protected from erosion have an adequate sediment supply to build upwards, and will likely be more resilient to the effects of climate change.

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
