During 1984, Submerged Aquatic Vegetation (SAV) beds in the Chesapeake Bay were photographed and mapped under grants by the U.S. EPA and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) and EPA's Environmental Photographic Interpretation Center (EPIC). In addition, ground surveys for SAV were conducted in the Potomac Valley by the USGS and NVCC, and in the entire Maryland section of the bay by the Maryland Department of the Environment. Field observations made in the Susquehanna River and Flats, and the Choptank River were used to corroborate and fill in areas missed by the aerial photography. The report represents a unique effort to combine all the information into one baywide report of the 1984 status of SAV.
