This dataset contains watershed means of estimated percent impervious surfaces for three time periods: 1992, 2002, and 2012. Estimates are based on coefficients derived from comparing land use of the 2012 NAWQA Wall-to-wall Anthropogenic Land-use Trends (NWALT) product to the 2011 National Land Cover Database (NLCD) imperviousness, then applying those coefficients to previous years (1974-2002) of the NWALT dataset.

This metadata record documents 11 comma delimited tables representing the amount of reported best management practice (BMP) implementation for the years from 1985 to 2014 at three geographic scales: county or land-river modeling segment, River Input Monitoring (RIM) station drainage areas, and the entire Chesapeake Bay Watershed (CBWS). Data originated from the Chesapeake Bay Watershed jurisdictions including Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Delaware, New York, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia. Data were reported to the Chesapeake Bay Program for an annual review of progress toward meeting nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment reduction goals.

This metadata record documents 3 sets of comma delimited tables representing the amount of reported best management practice (BMP) implementation within the Chesapeake Bay watershed as well as output data from scenarios of the Chesapeake Bay Program Phase 5.3.2 Watershed Model. The scenario data were used to estimate the effects of BMPs on water quality. The data are organized by three themes (child items below); 1) BMP implementation and definitions, 2) isolation scenarios, and 3) "Progress" and "No Action" scenarios.

This dataset contains values of normal reservoir storage in units of acre-feet per km2, for three time periods: 1992, 2002, and 2012. Values are derived from a slightly-modified version of the National Inventory of Dams (NID) 2013 dataset, for which approximately 10% of records had the dam completion date estimated.
thumbnail
This dataset contains values of soils, climate, hydrologic, topographic, and other geographic characteristics such as drainage area. These are considered "static" characteristics, which do not change over the time period of this study.
thumbnail
This dataset provides estimates of annual and seasonal precipitation for selected Chesapeake Bay watersheds. Season 1 is November-February; season 2 is March-June; and season 3 is July-October.
thumbnail
This metadata record documents 2 comma delimited tables representing output from the Chesapeake Bay Program Phase 5.3.2 Watershed Model. The effect of best management practices (BMP) in 2014 in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed (CBWS) is estimated through a series of model scenarios that isolate the effect of individual BMPs. Data include a table describing the series of isolation scenarios and the summarized output of all scenarios. Scenario output include the estimated nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment mass reductions for each BMP. Analysis of BMP implementation over time can provide insight to water quality restoration progress.

This metadata report documents a shapefile of watershed boundaries for 84 selected United States Geological Survey (USGS) water quality stations that are part of the Chesapeake Bay non-tidal network (NTN).

thumbnail
This dataset contains estimates of the yearly sum of total nitrogen and total phosphorus (hereafter referred to as nitrogen and phosphorus) inputs from fertilizer applications and from manure applications in selected Chesapeake Bay watersheds from 1985 through 2012.
thumbnail
The dataset contains estimates for total nitrogen and total phosphorus loads from point sources, combined sewer overflows, wastewater treatment plants that discharge to surface water for selected Chesapeake Bay watersheds. For source information, please refer to the process steps in this metadata report.

These data report the percent of agricultural land, within each selected Chesapeake Bay watershed, that is enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), based on county-level data for each year from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency.

This metadata record documents a comma-delimited table representing scenario output from the Chesapeake Bay Program Phase 5.3.2 Watershed Model. The annual effect of best management practices (BMP) on water quality in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed (CBWS) is estimated through a series of model scenarios. The model output data tables for each year from 1985 to 2014 are included with estimated mass of nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment. Each year has an output table for a “Progress” scenario, which is a model run with all BMPs active, and a “No Action” scenario, which is a model run with all BMPs deactivated. Model output is provided at the Watershed Model land-river segment scale.

This dataset contains values of the Palmer Hydrological Drought Index (PHDI) for annual and seasonal periods from 1985-2012. Values are derived from data based on National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) climate divisions, of which there are 344 in the U.S.
