Data on the Distribution and Abundance of Submersed Aquatic Vegetation in the Tidal Potomac River, Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia 1985

Published: January 01, 1986

This report summarizes data on the distribution and abundance of submersed aquatic vegetation collected in the tidal Potomac River during 1985.  Plant species were identified and dry weight determined for selected sites.  Information on competition between Hydrilla verticillata and toher species was collected.  Water-quality characteristics measured include temperature, specific conductance, dissolved oxygen, pH, and transparency as indicated by Secchi depth.  A map was made of the distribution of submersed aquatic vegetation based on transect samples and a complete shoreline survey.
