Summary
Abstract: Polyline map tracing the deepest parts of the Chesapeake Bay and its tidal estuaries. Channels were digitized based on deepest contours, channel slope, channel width and bottom geomorphology. Contour data derived from NOAA/NOS 30 meter gridded DEM for Chesapeake Bay bathymetry.

Purpose: The deepest parts of the Bay and its estuaries may represent a natural barrier to cross-channel sediment transport. This map was developed as a starting point to assist in modeling sediment transport in the Bay.
