Abstract : The Chesapeake Bay Institute (CBI) maintains a bank of information consisting of all oceanographic data collected by CBI on the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. Since 1949 CBI has gathered data both for specific projects and for general surveys. Much of it has been published as individual cruise reports (CBI Data Reports 1-50), but never collated in a way to make it generally accessible for secondary use. Recently a complete reorganization of this data bank was undertaken to promote better utilization of its contents. This report describes the contents of the Chesapeake Bay portion of CBI data bank.
