Contents Notes Introduction and overview of findings -- Human population growth and land-use change -- Factors affecting the distribution and transport of nutrients -- Transport of nitrogen in ground water -- Assessing changes in streamflow and nutrients -- Sources and transport of sediment in the watershed -- Sediment sources and deposition in the estuary -- Occurrence of pesticides in the Bay watershed -- Contaminant exposure and impacts on waterbirds and selected wildlife -- Long-term changes in climate and water quality -- Submerged aquatic vegetation and water clarity -- Factors affecting coastal wetland loss and restoration -- Factors affecting coastal wetland loss and restoration -- Factors affecting fish health -- Changes in food and habitats of waterbirds. The purpose of this report is to present a synthesis of the USGS Chesapeake Bay science related to the 2001-06 goals and provide implications for environmental management. The report provides USGS findings that address the science needs of the Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP) restoration goals and includes summaries of 1. land-use change; 2. water quality in the watershed, including nutrients, sediment, and contaminants; 3. long-term changes in climate and estuarine water quality; 4. estuary habitats, focusing on submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) and tidal wetlands; and 5. factors affecting fish and waterbird populations.
