Science Advisory Team
The Science Advisory Team met regularly with each Design Team, contributed to the Briefing Book, provided online access to data through the Resilience Atlas, and presented a two-hour science briefing at the Exploratorium at the start of the research phase. Through these activities, the Team helped incorporate local scientific knowledge and datasets, identified ecosystem restoration and adaptation opportunities, and maximized alignment with current environmental management efforts. The Team also provided review and comment on each of the draft design concepts. The Science Advisory Team draws on the scientists of the San Francisco Estuary Institute and is made possible by support from the Santa Clara Valley Water District.
