This study was one of five intensive watershed studies designed by the Chesapeake Bay Program's Eutrophication Work Group to provide detailed nonpoint source loading rates and ambient water quality data within the Chesapeake Bay drainage area. The study was conducted within the Patuxent Estuary Watershed and consisted of estuarine slack tide surveys, intensive 24 hour water quality surveys, primary productivity measurements, sediment oxygen demand and sediment nutrient flux measurements, phytoplankton and nitrifying bacterial longitudinal surveys, nonpoint source monitoring at five subwatersheds, current speed and direction measurements as well as rainfall quality and quantity measurements.
