Technical Abstract: The following is a report by a STAC Review Team concerning the methods and documentation used by the Chesapeake Bay Partnership for evaluation of nutrient inputs to Phase 6 of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Model. The “STAC Review of the Nutrient Inputs to the Watershed Model” (previously referred to as the ‘Scenario Builder’ review) has long been on the list of planned reviews by the Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) to assist the Chesapeake Bay Program Office (CBPO) in the development of Phase 6 of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Model. The final set of charge questions for this review was received by STAC from the CBPO Modeling Workgroup on June 21, 2016. This Executive Summary includes the major recommendations by the Review Team pertinent to all charge questions. Although only one major recommendation is listed for Question #5 in this summary, many additional editorial remarks and suggestions for improved readability of the documentation are included in the body of the report.
