University of Maryland Extension (UME) provides a lot of this kind of information. Check out their site on the Chesapeake Bay: http://extension.umd.edu/topics/water. UME also houses Sea Grant which provides education and outreach about the bay. Please see these sites for more information:

This is a listing of the Faculty and Staff of Sea Grant:

You may want to send your specific questions to Dany Burns, the Administrative Assistant to the Director (see the above listing for her contact information). She will know which faculty are in the best position to offer you advice.
