Description:

The Chesapeake Research Consortium (CRC), the Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP), along with the Chesapeake Community Modeling Program (CCMP) and CSDMS/CFRG, will convene a three-day workshop to undertake a comprehensive review of the status of the current CBP management modeling system and discuss future directions for management modeling in the CBP with a view toward developing a roadmap for future CBP modeling in 2025 and beyond. This workshop will be guided by the following overarching questions: 1. Description of needs: What are the mandates and the scientific, computational, and data management challenges the CBP faces in the coming years and what critical changes and upgrades will have to be made to the CBP modeling system to meet these challenges? 2. Review of advice: How can information and recommendations from previous workshops and committee reports and organizations like the STAC, National Research Council (NRC), CCMP and CSDMS be brought to bear to address these needs? 3. Description of resources: What human and infrastructure resources are going to be available to meet these future needs and challenges? How can resources be used more efficiently and collaboration among government, private, and academic partners be maximized? What additional resources might be needed and how might the various stakeholders and partners work most effectively to find these? 4. Visioning for 2025 and beyond: Can a well-informed, realistic, and unified vision for future CBP modeling be created to guide us into the future?

Purpose/Objective:

A Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) Workshop in which the lead model developers in the Chesapeake Bay program and leading academic researchers will meet and discuss the lessons learned from release of the phase 6 of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed model and the 2017 mid point assessment of the Chesapeake Bay TMDL. This presentation discusses the current state of atmospheric nutrient deposition modeling and where we envision future model development to further support the EPA, Chesapeake Bay Program and states.
