Data report (Virginia Institute of Marine Science) ; no. 36.
The purpose of this report is to characterize water quality conditions during the 1985 water year, October 1984 through September 1985. For the most part, the information is provided in graphical format. Only data for the Virginia portion of Chesapeake Bay is included. No data analysis or interpretation is included, since this is the stated purpose of a number of other reports. We believe that the report will be useful to both scientists and managers who need ready access to some portion of the data on a regular basis. With this report one could, for example, quickly examine seasonal patterns, compare conditions at two stations, or see if surface and bottom conditions differed significantly. Trends, inter-annual variations and other important considerations are treated in other reports.
