The effects of Tropical Storm Agnes on the Chesapeake Bay Estuarine System
Chesapeake Research Consortium
Chesapeake Research Consortium publication ; no. 54
Sampling techniques in use since August 1971 were employed to study effects of Tropical Storm Agnes on lower Chesapeake Bay zooplankton following the storm's passage on June 21, 1972. Mean catches of copepods, cladocerans, barnacle larvae, decapod larvae, chaetognaths, and fish eggs and larvae were calculated for the entire study area and six subareas from 8" bongo net collections. A single subarea was selected for specific identifications within major taxa of zooplankton.
