Chesapeake Bay Program Office
In the fall of 2007 STAC recruited the authors as an independent panel of experts to review the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Model (CBWM) Phase 5 effort and make recommendations for its enhancement. The review panel met as a group on January 23 - 25 in Annapolis, MD. Limited documentation on the Phase 5 CBWM was provided in advance. Presentations were given to the review team by Richard Batiuk, Gary Shenk, and Lewis Linker of the EPA CBPO. The panel was charged with assessing 1) work to date, 2) the model's suitability for making management decisions at the Bay Watershed and local scales, and 3) potential enhancements to improve the predictive ability of the next generation of the CBWM. Their comments and recommendations are summarized in a report that was submitted to the CBP following the review?s completion.
