Amchitka Plan Summary

CRESP Amchitka Implementation Plan Summary

by Charles W. Powers, CRESP II PI

In the documents found on this page of the CRESP website, the reader will find an extensive discussion of how CRESP II plans to implement its Amchitka Scientific Assessment Plan (June 24, 2003) with a series of activities that begin in the field (June 12 – August 8, 2004) and, with data analysis and synthesis, are planned to be completed by late Spring 2005. When completed this work is intended to help determine:

  1. whether there is any current threat to human healthand the environment from leakage into the Island’s sea waters from nuclear tests shots at Amchitka; and
  2. a baseline of biological, physical and other data that should aid in the reduction of uncertainty and the development of a long-term stewardship plan (likely including subsequent monitoring against the baseline) now scheduled for completion during FY2005.

Section II. Radionuclide Analysis and Data Management

How we are moving forward to define precisely how we will process and analyze data from those 2 basic expedition elements and what we can currently say about how we anticipate synthesizing those data sources. It also describes the data management program being implemented by CRESP, one that is designed to achieve effective QA/QC of all data analyzed in this project
