The Chesapeake Bay, Atlantic Coastal Bays, and their tidal tributaries include 6, miles of shoreline. Approximately 4, miles of that shoreline are eroding. Approximately 65% of the shoreline has low to moderate erosion ( feet/year), while 3% of the shoreline experiences moderate to high erosion of at least 4 feet per year (DNR).File Size: 2MB.

Oh, but there are occasional monsters.Located in the middle of the US Atlantic coast, the Chesapeake Bay is one of the world’s largest estuaries ().The tidal waters of the Bay cover mile 2 (11, km 2).What makes the Chesapeake Bay unique is the size of its watershed relative to the water surface area.During spring tides, the currents in the lower bay may exceed 1 m/s, resulting in reduced stratification and weaker subtidal flows than during neap tides (Valle-Levinson, ).
Thus, bathymetric variations, freshwater discharge, wind velocity, and tidal forcing are expected to influence the flow and water density at the Chesapeake Bay entrance.
