Abstract:
The Patuxent River Monitoring program is an on-going Maryland state project the includes both monitoring and mathematical modeling of the estuary in support of the Maryland Patuxent Restoration Strategy. Direct sediment-water exchanges are measured monthly at ten stations on the Patuxent River. Thirty-seven stations are sampled for salinity and depth gradients, surficial sediment are analyzed for total and active sediment chlorophyll a concentrations, and bottom water nutrient concentrations and sediment redox potential is measured. These parameters are used as input variables for statistical models that predict sediment water fluxes at the mapping stations. A near shore SAV habitat evaluation is also conducted.
