A CHEMICAL AND ISOTOPIC COMPARISON OF TWO 1ST-ORDER AGRICULTURAL TRIBUTARIES, KENT COUNTY, MARYLAND
Nitrate derived predominantly from agricultural fertilizers results in algal blooms and wide-spread anoxia in estuarine environments. Roughly half the nitrate delivered to the Chesapeake Bay is derived from groundwater ...
Scales of Bank Roughness and Their Relationship to Bank Erosion Processes
Stream bank erosion rates and the stabilization of channel width are poorly understood processes. There have been two distinct approaches to the study and prediction of bank erosion rates in natural streams. In order to ...
EFFECTS OF BAR FORMATION ON CHANNEL STABILITY AND SEDIMENT LOADS IN AN URBAN WATERSHED
This study investigates channel adjustment due to urbanization in the Little Paint Branch creek of the Anacostia River watershed. In the past 15 years, large gravel bars have formed in the channels, more than doubling the ...
Characterization of the spatial differences in hydrological functioning in a tidal marsh, Patuxent River, MD: A framework for understanding nutrient dynamics
This study investigates spatial variations in sediment hydraulic conductivity (K), network channel shape and horizontal groundwater flux magnitude toward tidal network channels in a freshwater tidal marsh. Results showed ...
