The study began determination of the location and extent of marine submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) in the Albemarle Pamlico Estuarine system based on conventional aerial photography. The objectives of the completed funding year included: Obtaining a preliminary estimate of total marine SAV in the Albemarle/Pamlico system; Acquiring aerial photography at scales of 1:24,000 and 1:50,000 for Core Sound and southeastern Pamlico Sound from Cape Lookout to Oregon Inlet for interpretation and charting of marine SAV in subsequent funding years; and Conducting SAV sampling from Cape Lookout to Oregon Inlet to be used to ground truth 1985 and 1988 photography and provide regional information on species composition of SAV in southern Core Sound (and northern Core and eastern Pamlico Sounds next year).
