The Chesapeake Bay Bibliography was initiated by the Virginia Institute of Marine Science in response to growing resource management problems of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. With these problems came the realization that planning and management of such a great natural resource is an overwhelming task requiring the best available information. This bibliography, therefore, was undertaken to document existing sources of information, to help identify research and data gathering needs, and to develop a comprehensive research and information services programs for individuals interested in research on, and management of the natural resources of the Chesapeake Bay region.
The Chesapeake Bay Bibliography: Volume IV - Virginia is a subject index of literature concerning the land and water resources of the Commonwealth's portion of the Chesapeake Bay region. Books, periodicals, published and unpublished governmental, academic, and private reports, theses and dissertations have been consulted to determine their suitability for inclusion in the bibliography.
This volume includes and updates the water resource-oriented citations contained in Volumes I and II, and it also identifies information sources dealing with the land resources of Virginia's nine coastal planning regions. This enlargement reflects the growing concern over land and water resource interrelationships, and was made to help meet the information needs of government and citizen groups involved in Virginia's Coastal Resources Management Planning Program.
- Volume I (1971) which summarized information sources dealing with the James River
- Volumes II Virginia (1972) focused on the respective segments of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.
- Volume V Virginia and Maryland Waters (1981) covers the entire Bay and its tributaries, from the fall line of the Susquehanna River, south through Maryland and Virginia to the Hampton Roads area and extends three miles into the territorial offshore waters of Virginia. The Virginia segment of the Eastern Shore on the Delmarva Peninsula is also included.
