A Water Quality Modeling Study Of Lynnhaven Bay, Virginia, A. Y. Kuo, P. V. Hyer Dec 1979

A Water Quality Modeling Study Of Lynnhaven Bay, Virginia, A. Y. Kuo, P. V. Hyer

Reports

The City of Virginia Beach has proposed channel dredging in the Eastern Branch of the Lynnhaven Bay for the purposes of recreations and drainage improvement. It is therefore necessary to examine the possible environmental results of such a project. This environmental assessment is complicated by another proposal to modify the Lynnhaven system. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has proposed adding a second canal leading to the Eastern Branch, in order to reduce flood damage. This canal project would affect the Lynnhaven system by increasing nonpoint sources of pollution and by increasing the tidal prism. The water quality consequences ...


A Description Of The Commercial Marine Fisheries Of Virginia, James Zaborski Nov 1979

A Description Of The Commercial Marine Fisheries Of Virginia, James Zaborski

Reports

The magnitude and valtte of the fisheries of Virginia are significant. Expansion of some fisheries since 1977 in conjunctio~ with rising prices for fishery products in general has increased the importance of this industry to the Commonwealth. Virginia's fisheries are varied, some segments of the industry such as the oyster fishery have been in existence since colonial days; others, such as the surf clam fishery, are relatively new. The size and composition of the different industries also differ widely. The menhaden fishery exempli~ies what might be termed corporate fishing while the blue crab fishery is conducted by numerous ...


A Water Quality Study Of The Eastern Branch Of The Lynnhaven Bay, Virginia, Albert Y. Kuo, Paul V. Hyer Nov 1979

A Water Quality Study Of The Eastern Branch Of The Lynnhaven Bay, Virginia, Albert Y. Kuo, Paul V. Hyer

Reports

To alleviate the flooding in the drainage basin of the Lynnhaven River at Virginia Beach, Virginia, the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers has proposed to improve the waterways along the headwater of the river (House Document, 1976). The improvements include the widening and deepening of the existing canal, and the dredging of a new canal. As a result of the proposed project and the present rate of increase in area development, the freshwater runoff from the drainage basin and the tidal prism in the system are expected to increase. Since nonpoint sources are the only source of pollutants to ...

Middle Atlantic Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Studies Volume 1: Executive Summary, E. M. Burreson, H. J. Knebel

Reports

Increasing demand for petroleum and natural gas in the United States has led to a need for development of reliable new domestic sources. The Outer Continental Shelf of the United States holds great interest among the oil companies for possible exploration and development of oil and gas resources to meet this need. This interest was demonstrated for the Middle Atlantic Outer Continental Shelf in the oil companies' response to the lease sale conducted in August 1976. Of the 154 tracts comprising 876,750 acres offered for lease in August 1975 for exploratory drilling in the Baltimore Canyon Trough (Figure 1 ...

Summary Of Shoreline Situation Reports For Virginia's Tidewater Localities, Carl H. Hobbs Iii, Dennis W. Owen, Lynne C. Morgan

Reports

This summary report marks the completion of the Shoreline Situation Report project. For over six years project team members with the Department of Geological Oceanography at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science have inventoried over 5,000 miles of shoreline in Tidewater Virginia. The methodology was developed and evaluated with funding through the Chesapeake Research Consortium, Inc. from the Research Applied to National Needs (RANN) program of the National Science Foundation. After preliminary evaluation as to its worth, the project became part of Virginia's Coastal Resources Management Program, supported by the Office of Conmerce and Resources with funds provided ...
