After I posted, I read Joanna's post. I made some tweaks. I couldn't break the photobleaching symbol apart, so I made the symbol smaller so it didn't dominate so much, and I moved the arrow to the end of the pipe.
Regarding our communication program...
1. We will circulate the conceptual diagram among the workshop participants, to make sure that we got all the important issues. In this way we can provide additional discourse among the participants. We had a volunteer to establish a CDOM list-serve, so this may provide a good opportunity to show the list-serve as a tool.
2. We will place the diagram in our workshop report so that the information becomes more accessible. The report wil be sent through our management conference of citizens, managers, and elected officials/top agency heads. It will be used to better communicate the report to them. The diagram will be placed on our website page for the CDOM workshop.
3. We are updating our Comprehehsive Conservation and Management Plan. One of the new quantifiable objectives relates to communicating up-to-date science in understandable ways. This diagram is a good first example (prepared the same week as the workshop). We will place the diagram as such an example under our vision sections.
4. I've receive a request to allow the diagram to be used in others' presentations and I have approved of that use. I may use it for public presentations in conjuction with a gif animation of monthly color levels. For fun, I am attaching an animation I made of salinity that is a real crowd-pleaser. I can do the same for color, once that part of a contract with the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center is complete.
