Offers examples where new methods and approaches of environmental monitoring are being employed. Papers elaborate on specific concerns, questions, and program criteria that characterize the development of monitoring programs and provide paradigams for future monitoring programs. Key discussion concepts include water quality, statistical design criteria, long-term sampling programs, ecological data base management, quality assurance, and data integrity.
