Description: Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note
Purpose: This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) summarizes estuarine suspended sediment budgets developed for several estuaries of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland and Virginia (Herman and Friedrichs 2010). These sediment budgets provide better understanding of sediment transport patterns and pathways, and will aid in improving Regional Sediment Management (RSM) practices in the US Army Engineer Districts, Baltimore and Norfolk. Sediment budgets were calculated for the Patuxent River, Maryland; York River, Virginia; and a partial budget was developed for the Potomac River, Maryland.
