Letter Report on a Technical Peer Review of the Buzzards Bay Risk Assessment
At the request of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP), the National Research Council’s Transportation Research Board/Marine Board Committee to Review the Buzzards Bay Maritime Risk Assessment evaluated the methods and conclusions of the Buzzards Bay Risk Assessment (BBRA).
The BBRA was originally commissioned by the United States Coast Guard and MassDEP. The committee’s task was to provide an independent technical review of the BBRA focusing on its scope, methods, and supporting data.
This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The letter report was publicly released on October 25, 2013 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the Transportation Research Board.
