In 2011, 57,956 acres of underwater bay grasses in Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries were mapped via aerial survey.
However, while the entire Bay was flown, some portions of the Bay were not mapped since SAV signatures were
masked by excess turbidity present months after the passage of Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee.
