Solving Bay problems requires fundamental understanding of the complex, dynamic ecosystem processes that shape human-induced change. The sound science necessary for management of Galveston Bay has therefore received high emphasis in determining the work of the Galveston Bay National Estuary Program (GBNEP) and the expenditure of Program funds. The Scientific/Technical Advisory Committee of the GBNEP has overseen more than twenty specific projects addressing water quality, living resources, human health issues, and physical processes within the estuary. The results of these projects, along with the findings of scientists not sponsored by the GBNEP, will help assure that comprehensive planning hits its intended mark.
