SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Background: Federal agencies have been cooperating since 2001 under 
a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on the research and development of 
multimedia environmental models. (please see: https://my.usgs.gov/confluence/display/cdi/Interagency+Collaborative+for+Environmental+Modeling+and+Monitoring). 
The MOU, revised and reaffirmed in 2016, establishes a framework for 
facilitating cooperation and coordination among six agencies (the 
specific research organization within the agency is in parentheses):
     National Science Foundation;
     U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Engineer Research and 
Development Center);
     U.S. Department of Energy (Office of Biological and 
Environmental Research);
     U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (Office of Research 
and Development);
     U.S. Geological Survey; and
     U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (Office of Nuclear 
Regulatory Research).
    These agencies are cooperating and coordinating in the research and 
development of multimedia environmental models, software, and related 
databases. Model development and simulation supports interagency 
interests in human and environmental health risk assessment, 
uncertainty analyses, water supply issues, and contaminant transport.
    Purpose of the Public Meeting: The MOU calls for an annual public 
meeting to provide an opportunity for other Federal and State agencies, 
the scientific community, and the public to be briefed on ICEMM 
activities and initiatives and to discuss technological advancements in 
multimedia environmental modeling.
