Watersheds - A Case Study: The Chesapeake Bay


Main Idea

The Chesapeake Bay is an
estuary that has many important functions. Remember, an estuary is an area where fresh and saltwater meet and are mixed by tides. The Chesapeake Bay is one of the largest estuaries in the United States and one of the most productive. Estuaries perform important natural functions, such as providing habitat for many organisms and serving as nurseries for their young.
