The modeling studies reported here emphasize the polyhaline eelgrass habitats of the lower Chesapeake Bay, as a part of a larger program of ecosystem modeling sponsored by the Living Resources Subcommittee of the Chesapeake Bay Program. The report covers progress made through April 1993. The primary focus of the polyhaline SAV modeling studies has been on ligh-dependent eelgrass productivity and water quality parameters which affect the submarine light climate. Where eutrophication impacts have been assessed, they have been used to drive increases in epiphytes, which block light penetration to eelgrass leaves. Eutrophication of the tidal tributaries diminishes light-dependent eelgrass production and growth and has been implicated as the principal cause for SAV declines throughout the Chesapeake Bay.
