The Research & Data Gaps Working Group
This assembly of distinguished scientists, Bay researchers, and health experts is co-facilitated by Greg Allen, Ph.D., Senior EPA Scientist, Chesapeake Bay Program and Vicki Blazer, Ph.D., Fish Biologist, USGS. The group’s focus is on identifying pesticides of concern, their possible impacts on the Chesapeake Bay ecosystems, and data gaps. They share research with appropriate agencies and the other Project working groups.
Recent projects include:
- A soon-to-be-released report which compiles and summarizes environmental research relevant to the Chesapeake Bay watershed, from 2010 to 2021.
- Research Matrix Methodology – 2021 update of matrices assessing changes in occurrence, persistence, and environmental toxicity to determine risk within the Chesapeake Bay
- 2018 White Paper: Assessing and Ranking Compounds of Concern and Classes of Compounds
- 2009 White Paper: Understanding the Problem and Identifying Solutions to Reduce the Impact of Pesticides on the Watershed
