The State of the Chesapeake Bay and Its Watershed: A Report to the Citizens of the Bay Region (2004)Published on December 1, 2004 in Environmental Assessment
The State of the Chesapeake Bay and Its Watershed provides current information on the conditions and challenges that face the Chesapeake Bay today. Through an intricate suite of environmental indicators, Bay scientists assess both the state of the Bay and the state of the Bay?s restoration. Chesapeake Bay Program partners track some 100 indicators of Bay health ? 89 are based on environmental monitoring and tracking data, while 11 employ computer model forecasts to project future water quality conditions resulting from today?s restoration initiatives. This suite provides us the most comprehensive look at the current state of the Bay while allowing Bay scientists to predict likely future conditions.View details
