this report summarizes data on the distribution and abundance of submersed aquatic vegetation collected in the tidal Potomac River and Estuary during 1986. Plan species were dientified and dry weight determined for selected sites sampled in spring and fallo. The percentage of each plan speciesn was determined in areas of highplant density in the fall. Water-quality characteristics measure include temperature, specific conductance, dissolved oxygen, pH, and transparency as indicated by Secchi depthy. Maps were made of the distribution of submersed aquatic vegetation based on transect samples and a complete shoreline survey.
