The Chesapeake Bay Program’s Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) and the Chesapeake Research Consortium (CRC) are now accepting proposals to support a science synthesis project related to how climate change may impact on-going efforts to restore and protect the Chesapeake Bay. Appropriate topics for a STAC-sponsored science synthesis project are those where a thoughtful analysis and synthesis of available data and/or previously published results would identify, characterize, and suggest means of addressing important knowledge gaps, inform additional research, and place scientific information into a management-relevant context.

Interested parties may refer to the “Request for Proposals” document (PDF) for more detailed guidance. All proposals are DUE to STAC by Friday, May 10, 2019. If you have any questions, please contact STAC Chair Brian Benham ( or Rachel Dixon (
