Status and Trends Team

Scope and Purpose

Update status and trends (indicators) of ecosystem conditions.

Many of the Goal Team and associated WGs have the lead responsibility to update CBP indicators. The STAR will collaborate with the Goal Teams and science providers to ensure updating of the indicators, or plan for additional indicators that are needed for the new Watershed Agreement. The CBP GIS group will oversee compilation and support of spatial data related to the indicators to have it on the CBP website.  The STAR will work with the CBP communications team to have the results reported on the CBP website, in ChesapeakeStat, and the annual Bay Barometer. Finally, delivery of status and trends will be enhanced through ChesapeakeStat, which is being redesigned and other data delivery tools.
