The Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee of the CBP, with the support of the CBP Modeling Subcommittee and the Chesapeake Community Modeling Program (CCMP), is sponsoring a workshop to discuss future directions for modeling in the CBP. The broad objectives of this workshop include: (1.) exploring the challenges and opportunities likely to face CBP modeling efforts in the next 5-10 years, and (2.) formulating recommendations to help the CBP plan for the future and maximize the utility and openness of its modeling efforts. Presentations and open discussion will address many topics relevant to these broad objectives, including: (1) incorporation of new numerical techniques (e.g., data assimilation), (2) improved co-operation among management and research modelers through open-source community modeling approaches, (3) coupling with larger scale atmospheric and oceanic models, and (4) better integration with monitoring efforts. Additional topics will be generated by participants at the workshop.
