An introduction to the Chesapeake Bay with emphasis on the patterns of water circulation and the geological processes that produced this estuary, the largest and most productive in the United States. Students learn how physical and chemical factors produced within the drainage basin or imported from the Atlantic Ocean, both natural and man-made, influence the ecology and life history of selected commercially and recreationally important species from the bay’s major biological communities.
