(Webinar) Science in Action: 3 Tools Used in Chesapeake Bay Restoration
Date and TimeTuesday, January 24, 2023 from 12:00pm - 1:00pm
At the Chesapeake Bay Program, our restoration efforts are guided by a suite of cutting-edge tools and datasets—and we want to share them with you! In this webinar, you will learn about three of our most productive tools that can be used to advance restoration at a regional or local level. They are free and available to members of the public, as well as everyone working in the environmental space:
Very High Resolution Land Use/Land Cover Data Project: The most detailed and comprehensive dataset depicting how land is used in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
Chesapeake Assessment Scenario Tool (CAST): This is the digital version of the Chesapeake Bay Program’s Watershed Model. Jurisdictions across the region use this tool to create watershed simulations and develop stringent pollution reduction plans.
Resource Targeting Portal: This resource was designed to help Chesapeake Bay Program decision-makers allocate resources to projects that support the maximum number of restoration goals.
