Scientific knowledge of Chesapeake Bay and tidal tributaries has accumulated over many years beginning mostly with descriptive surveys prior to the 1960's and 1970's and evolving towards a coupling of monitoring and research in recent years. This essay discusses the need to more fully couple monitoring and research efforts in the Bay system because such a union of efforts is argued to be the most effective way to assess gross trends in the 'health' of the system (monitoring) and to understand the basic forces causing these trends (research). This essay challenges this myth and considers the effective interactions between these important activities in detecting changes and establishing cause-effect relationships in a complex estuarine ecosystem such as Chesapeake Bay.
