U.S. EPA-ORDColorado State University/USDA-ARS Athens, GAFt. Collins, CO Interagency Steering Committee on Multimedia Environmental Modeling 2013/2014 Annual General Meeting Hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy Forrestal Building Washington, DC February 25-26, 2014

2 2 Foster the exchange of information about environmental modeling tools, modeling frameworks, and environmental monitoring databases Purpose

3 3 Objectives Harmonize existing and evolving environmental modeling systems Investigate and provide guidance and deployable tools for use by multiple frameworks Promote the standardization of data exchange protocols
