The Chesapeake Bay Program, in consortium with participating agencies, universities and organizations, has conducted a range of physical, chemical and biological monitoring programs in tidal waters and streams, in the atmosphere, and on the land with the goal of supporting the restoration and protection of the Chesapeake Bay. These programs generally aproach this goal through the fulfillment of the following objectives:
1. characterization of existing conditions;
2. determination of status and trends; and
3. use of monitoring information to further the understanding of processes controlling water quality and the linkage with living resources.
