The Arthur R. Marshall National Wildlife Refuge hosted a meeting of our modeling advisory panel on Friday, January 28, 2005. Dr. Vincent Neary chaired the panel that includes two other modeling experts who were selected by Dr. Neary. The panel advised the refuge on modeling issues including selection of the specific model or models that we developed to meet refuge objectives.
