Water Quality Protection Program (WQPP)
Technical Advisory Committee


The TAC advises the Steering Committee on scientific matters and assists in the design and prioritization of monitoring and research/special studies programs. The TAC is composed of scientists from federal and state agencies and academic institutions, non-profit organizations, and knowledgeable citizens. Concurrent with the adoption of the Comprehensive Science Plan (2002) for the FKNMS, the role of the TAC expanded from serving the WQPP to providing advice on the entire purview of scientific matters within the FKNMS. A primary function of the TAC is the development of research priorities and review of research proposals. The TAC meets on an “as- needed” basis, generally once or twice a year.
