Projected 2050 Model Simulations for the Chesapeake Bay Program

Citation:

Bash, J. Projected 2050 Model Simulations for the Chesapeake Bay Program. 2017 Modeling Working Group Quarterly Review, Annapolis, MD, February 14 - 15, 2017.

Impact/Purpose:

The National Exposure Research Laboratory (NERL) Computational Exposure Division (CED) develops and evaluates data, decision-support tools, and models to be applied to media-specific or receptor-specific problem areas. CED uses modeling-based approaches to characterize exposures, evaluate fate and transport, and support environmental diagnostics/forensics with input from multiple data sources. It also develops media- and receptor-specific models, process models, and decision support tools for use both within and outside of EPA.

Description:

The Chesapeake Bay Program as has been tasked with assessing how changes in climate systems are expected to alter key variables and processes within the Watershed in concurrence with land use changes. EPA’s Office of Research and Development will be conducting historic and future, 2050, Weather Research and Forecast (WRF) metrological and Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) chemical transport model simulations to provide meteorological and nutrient deposition estimates for inclusion of the Chesapeake Bay Program’s assessment of how climate and land use change may impact water quality and ecosystem health. This presentation will present the timeline and research updates.
