Chesapeake Bay Submerged aquatic vegetation (sAV) Monitoring Program

BayLand has performed over 1,750 submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) surveys throughout the upper and central Chesapeake Bay, as well as the Eastern Shore over the past 20 years. Surveys have been performed for Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Harford, Cecil, Kent, Talbot and Charles County. We have created a Geographic Information System (GIS) database that houses over 44,000 acres of SAV data for 28,000 individual SAV beds. Each bed has an individual identification number and 13 other parameters associated with it such as species, bed density, maximum depth and area.
