About this Book

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Field Trip Guidebooks Series, Volume 233.

The field trip on Sunday, July 16, 1989, will visit shoreline reaches of the Chesapeake Bay estuary south and east of Washington, D.C. Shorelines included are beaches and spits, high bluffs, and lowland banks, as well as fringe marsh and lagoonal wetlands. Stops highlight patterns of development along the northern Chesapeake Bay shoreline, the problems of land loss, and several "solutions" to land loss.
