abstract Watershed boundaries for land areas draining to stream sites sampled in the NSF watershed study. The sites are grouped in 17 regional clusters throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Watershed boundaries were drawn onto USGS 7.5' topographic maps using map contour lines. The boundaries were then digitized from those maps into a series of ARC/INFO polygon coverages (one for each cluster).
