    Classical survey design and data analysis methods deal with observations at a single time point and cannot be applied directly to time series problems. This paper describes some recent work in the design of environmental surveys conducted over time. A method is given for finding the optimum number of times to repeat a survey over time. It is also shown how time series models can be used to evaluate the utility of base line surveys.
