The large size and complexity of Chesapeake Bay complicates restoration because watershed nutrient sources are spatially variable, vulnerability to pollution is not uniform in tidal waters, and changes to biological communities mediate responses to restoration efforts. This presentation highlights long-term change in Chesapeake Bay water quality and highlights the factors that lead to (a) restoration success, (b) resilience to both positive and negative changes, and (c) resistance to change.
