Book. Book condition: Very Good. Trade paperback 4to - over 9 - 12" tall "The Chesapeake Bay - heart of the Mid-Atlantic seaboard - faces enormous challenges int he coming decades. While the Bay has ithstood heavy loads of sediment and waste in the past, an increasing population and sprawling development patterns have raised the stakes.

Those potential outcomes take the form of three scenarios for the Bay's future, timed to the year 2030: Recent Trends, if recently observed conditions continue, but with a growing population; Current Objectives, if we largely reach the goals set forth in multijurisdictional Bay agreements; and Feasible Alternatives, if we put in place a series of additional innovative programs and new technologies..."
