Working with Partners

The USGS works with an array of partners in the Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP) to coordinate science and inform decisions. The science efforts are coordinated through the Scientific, Technical Assessment, and Report (STAR) team, which is led by the USGS. The science partners interact with resources agencies through CBP Goal Teams to inform decision making. See the partners page for more information.
