The U.S. Geological Survey is summarizing and communicating scientific findings and management implications to Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP) partners to support adaptive management and ecosystem decisionmaking.

The CBP Goal Implementation Teams are carrying out commitments from the Chesapeake 2000 Agreement and working on new outcomes described in the Watershed Agreement. The USGS is providing science to support the Goal Teams and coordinating activities through the CBP Scientific and Technical Analysis and Reporting (STAR) team. The CBP Goal Implementation Teams are addressing these major restoration topics:

While the CBP Goal Teams are the primary audience for USGS science, other key audiences include the CBP Management Board, Principle Staff Committee, the Executive Council; the agencies within the Federal Leadership Team; and Congress.

The USGS is summarizing and communicating key findings and their management implications to CBP decisionmakers. The science summaries are based on published reports and journal activities.
