The purpose of the U.S. Geological Survey study was to: 1) review the literature on erosion, sediment transport, and sediment storage for the entire Chesapeake Bay Watershed, 2) contrast the spatial variability of soil erosion in the Susquehanna River Watershed , (3) determine the temporal variation in bare ground in an agricultural watershed, (4) identify or “fingerprint” sources of fine-grained suspended sediment in selected watersheds, and (5) determine the role of flood plains and riparian wetlands in sediment storage.
