The Narragansett Bay Estuary Program (NBEP) has always emphasized the linkage between good science-based information and the recommended management options that evolve for use in various management plans used by state agencies. To ensure informed decision-making, it is critical that environmental managers have accurate up-to-date summaries concerning the various components of the Narragansett Bay ecosystem and its watershed.

Between 1984 and 1992, over 100 studies of the physical conditions and natural resources in Narragansett Bay and its watershed were developed. The results of these concentrated studies are available in PDF files on our publications page.

We continue to support linkages to the latest scientific information with our efforts to protect and restore the Bay. We now concentrate our science efforts on areas where we can fill data gaps or where science information is incomplete, as well as to summarize any recent work by scientists on critical issues that affect the Bay and its ecosystem.
