Data Interpretation

Data Interpretation Workshops

Interpreting the monitoring data that your group is collecting is an essential part of understanding your ecosystem.

Communicating key findings from your data is necessary for continued stakeholder engagement as well as drawing attention to values and threats in your watershed.

Data Interpretation workshops are provided by the CMC to all organizations within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed who have collected water quality and/or benthic monitoring data for at least one year. Organizations do not have to be a CMC member to participate in Data Interpretation Workshops.

Workshops include:

  • Data interpretation and science communication overview
  • Data interpretation techniques and hands-on applications
  • Science communication techniques and hands-on applications
  • Tier 2 and Tier 3 data can be used for generating report cards
