Chesapeake Bay Program
Summary: The Chesapeake Bay Program is the unique regional partnership that's been directing and conducting the restoration of the Chesapeake Bay since the signing of the historic 1983 Chesapeake Bay Agreement. The Chesapeake Bay Program partners include the states of Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia; the District of Columbia; the Chesapeake Bay Commission, a tri-state legislative body; the Environmental Protection Agency, representing the federal government; and participating advisory groups. As the largest estuary in the United States and one of the most productive in the world, the Chesapeake was this nation's first estuary targeted for restoration and protection. In the late 1970s, scientific and estuarine research on the Bay pinpointed three areas requiring immediate attention: nutrient over-enrichment, dwindling underwater Bay grasses and toxic pollution. Once the initial research was completed, the Bay Program evolved as the means to restore this exceptionally valuable resource. Since its inception in 1983, the Bay Program's highest priority has been the restoration of the Bay's living resources- its finfish, shellfish, Bay grasses, and other aquatic life and wildlife. Improvements include fisheries and habitat restoration, recovery of Bay grasses, nutrient and toxic reductions, and significant advances in estuarine science.

Climate Change and Delaware
Summary: Rising global temperatures are expected to raise sea level, and change precipitation and other local climate conditions. Changing regional climate could alter forests, crop yields, and water supplies. It could also threaten human health, and harm birds, fish, and many types of ecosystems. Deserts may expand into existing rangelands, and the character of some of our National Parks may be permanently altered. Unfortunately, many of the potentially most important impacts depend upon whether rainfall increases or decrease, which can not be reliably projected for specific areas.

Coastal Marsh Project
Summary: The purpose of the Project was to analyze the surface condition of coastal marshes and detect areas that were at risk for rapid loss of land area. Overall coastal marsh health and potential for deterioration were assessed for much of the east coast of the United States. The result of Project operations was the development of a Marsh Surface Condition data set and improved scientific analysis of coastal marshes. The Coastal Marsh Project operated in the Department of Geography at the University of Maryland, College Park from 1993 to 1998. Sponsored by the Mission to Planet Earth at NASA and the Department of Geography at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Delaware-USGS Programs
Summary: The effect of human activity on water quality is a very important and visible environmental issue in the Nation. In response to this concern, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is conducting comprehensive assessments of water-quality in 60 large regions across the Nation. The purpose of this program, the National Water-Quality Assessment Program, is to assess current water-quality conditions and to determine the causes of water-quality changes. The Delmarva Peninsula is 1 of the 60 study areas in this program and was 1 of 7 areas chosen for pilot studies. The study is federally funded, but the USGS is working in partnership with a large group of State and Federal agencies that regulate water quality and resource management. The Delmarva study has provided pol-icymakers and resource managers with important information on the extent of water-quality contamination caused by agricultural and residential land use. The study has shown that high concentrations of nitrate (greater than 10 milligrams per liter), a known hazard to human health, are found in most of the surficial aquifer, including deep parts of the aquifer used for water supply (fig. 1). Pesticides generally are not found in deep parts of the surficial aquifer, but they could migrate to these zones during the next few decades. The Delmarva study also showed that ground water containing high concentrations of nitrate will continue to discharge to streams draining into Chesapeake Bay for at least the next few decades. Accordingly, ground-water quality, as well as surface-water quality, is an important consideration in land-use practices designed to improve water quality in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. The issue is of vital importance to local resource managers and concerned citizens because the States in the Chesapeake Bay watershed have made a commitment to reduce contamination of the Bay significantly by 2000.

Delaware Riverkeeper Network
Summary: The Delaware Riverkeeper Network's mission is to protect and restore the Delaware River, its tributaries and habitats through advocacy, enforcement and citizen action. A membership organization founded in 1988, Riverkeeper works throughout the entire 13,000 square miles and four states (NY, NJ, PA and DE) that comprise the Delaware River watershed. Each stretch of the River and each of its numerous tributaries face unique challenges. That is why at Riverkeeper we believe the best defense of our aquatic ecosystems is offered by committed local individuals empowered with the information and tools to do the job. The Schuylkill River is the Delaware's largest tributary providing approximately one-third of the Delaware's flow. It contributes the largest amount of sediment and pollution to the Delaware. Therefore, in 1996, the Delaware Riverkeeper Network initiated its Schuylkill Riverkeeper project ? focused on bringing all of the benefits of Riverkeeping to the Schuylkill.

Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics (MRLC)
Summary: Due to the escalating costs of acquiring satellite images, in 1992 several federal agencies agreed to operate as a consortium in order to acquire satellite-based remotely sensed data for their environmental monitoring programs. Original members of the Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics (MRLC) consortium were the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) . Later joining the consortium were the National Atmospheric and Space Administration (NASA) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). During the 1990's, the MRLC resulted in several successful mapping programs, including the: (1) Coastal Change Analysis Project (C-CAP) administered by NOAA; (2) Gap Analysis Project (GAP) directed by the Biological Resources Division of the USGS; and the National Land Cover Data (NLCD) project directed by both the USGS and EPA. The data developed by these projects are available publicly either through download, or by contacting the agencies involved.
