In this project the authors investigated the patterns of variability in water quality, and resultant effects on submersed aquatic vegetation (SAV) using both field and laboratory mesocosm approaches. The authors' goals are two-fold: to study the spatial and temporal variability in water quality relative to the SAV community, and, investigate SAV response to variable water quality regimes. Two sites, which represent endpoints in the distribution of SAV in the Chesapeake Bay, have been chosen for intensive study of temporal and spatial variability associated with habitat requirements. The first site, Goodwin Island, is located near the mouth of the York River in the high salinity region of the bay. The second site, Havre de Grace, is located at the head of the Bay in the Susquehanna Flats Region and is the site of previous investigations.

Objectives were to investigate the spatial and temporal variability in water quality relative to these SAV communities and to compare trends in the Chesapeake Bay system.
