Technical Advisory Committee

The Technical Advisory Committee consists of local, regional, state and federal agency staff involved in monitoring, managing or protecting Tampa Bay. University researchers, private and public sector staff members, and affected user groups also are active participants on this committee. TAC representatives have scientific or technical expertise that assist TBEP in evaluating complex environmental issues involving Tampa Bay and in implementing bay restoration and protection goals. For more information, contact Maya Burke.

 

Roles and Responsibilities

 

Specific responsibilities of members include but are not limited to the following:
  • Review materials and sufficiently prepare prior to meeting.
  • Actively participate in meetings and in written correspondence, including offering analysis and asking questions to clarify understanding.
  • Develop collaborative grant proposals that further the Action Plans identified in the CCMP.
  • Contribute to regional data collection efforts and the development of open science reporting tools that can be used to evaluate the status and trends of key indicators of ecosystem health.
  • Provide counsel on research needs, project design and implementation, relevant indicators, meaningful success criteria, and necessary management frameworks.
  • Follow up on agreed-upon actions and inform others within partner agencies, as appropriate.
  • Promote and champion the core values, programmatic priorities and goals of the TBEP within the broader community.
  • Members shall not support or oppose specific projects or permits on behalf of the TBEP TAC as stated in Section 5.2(k) of the Interlocal Agreement.

Open Science Subcommittee

Open science (OS) is both a philosophy and set of tools to accomplish better science in less time together. The TBEP is committed to the integration of open science methods with its research products to achieve conservation and management actions defined for the program under the CCMP. As part of this effort, an OS subcommittee of the TAC was created in January 2020. A critical component of OS is engaging partners and stakeholders to reach consensus on elements of research, data collection, studies, and other applicable projects (e.g., data deliverables, results that support decision-making) that are ideally suited to a transparent, reproducible, and actionable workflow. The subcommittee engages with the TBEP to develop open science products that help bridge the research-management divide. Training on OS tools and best practices are also coordinated by the subcommittee to promote the development of a regional community of practice. For additional information, please contact the subcommittee chair Dr. Meagan Schrandt or TBEP Program Scientist Dr. Marcus Beck.

Southwest Florida Seagrass Working Group

The Southwest Florida Seagrass Working Group consists of scientists, resource managers, stakeholders and local officials dedicated to the protection and conservation of seagrass resources in Southwest Florida, including the Springs Coast, Tampa Bay, Sarasota Bay, and greater Charlotte Harbor. The TBEP supports the efforts of the Working Group by facilitating meetings every other year and providing online access to meeting information and presentations; annual seagrass transect training; a forum for technical discussions and requests for assistance; and a library of publications important for understanding the ecology of seagrasses and algae in Southwest Florida. For more information, contact TBEP Ecologist, Dr. Gary Raulerson.

Regional Ambient Monitoring Program

The SWFL Regional Ambient Monitoring Program (RAMP) coordinates quality assurance for the routine water quality monitoring conducted throughout the watershed. RAMP participants voluntarily meet quarterly to collect water samples, discuss water quality topics and compare analytical results from previously collected samples. The mission of RAMP is to foster cooperative participation of regional monitoring program staff to improve comparability of surface water sample collection, in situ field measurements, and laboratory methods used by water quality monitoring programs in Southwest Florida. For additional information about the SWFL RAMP, Natasha Dickrell, Pinellas County Environmental Management, or Public Outreach Specialist Sheila Scolaro.

Habitat Restoration Consortium

The objective of this group is to develop and implement a coordinated watershed approach that could 1) coordinate management, restoration, compensatory mitigation, and conservation land acquisition activities towards priority sites and projects identified in the HMPU; and 2) expand the scope and reach of habitat restoration planning up into the watershed to include contiguous and isolated freshwater wetland habitats as well as native upland habitats. Through these activities, publicly-funded conservation land acquisition and habitat restoration programs would be coordinated with regulatory compensatory mitigation activities throughout the entire watershed, optimizing available resources directed towards attainment of adopted watershed-level wetland habitat restoration goals, and tracking losses through permitted activities.

For additional information, please contact TBEP Ecologist Dr. Gary Raulerson.
