Science Program Overview

Organization of Science Program
Across the CALFED Bay Delta Program

As the actions of the CALFED Record of Decision (ROD) are being implemented, the Authority and other CALFED agencies are striving to incorporate stakeholder participation and science-based adaptive management. The goal is to ensure that the best possible scientific information guides decision-making within every aspect of the program, while results of CALFED activities are closely evaluated. Providing science relevant to decision making requires two things: building a conduit between experts and managers so the most current knowledge relevant to a problem can be directly communicated, and providing an unbiased scientific review of information gathered to define and evaluate program activities.
