Restoring Resilient Communities in Changing Landscapes.

This conference will be held October 15-19, 2018 at the Davenport Grand Hotel in Spokane, Washington.
The Society for Ecological Restoration Northwest Chapter and the Society of Wetland Scientists Pacific Northwest Chapter invite presenters for the 2018 joint regional conference, Restoring Resilient Communities in Changing Landscapes. The conference highlights the intersection between the practice and science of ecological restoration and ecosystem management in the Cascadia Bioregion, along with a broader continental perspective through participation of the North American Chapters of SER. We invite contributed presentations on topics that are of interest to a regional and wider continental audience of practitioners and scientists of ecological restoration and ecosystem management.

NSF-sponsored workshop to focus on data lifecycle training for grad students and postdocs

Travel and accommodations provided; applications due March 15, 2018
The NSF Cyber Carpentry Workshop: Data Lifecycle Training is a two-week summer workshop aimed at helping graduate students understand the many aspects of the data-intensive computing environment. Even more important, the workshop will focus on bridging the gap between domain scientists and computer and information scientists so that data-intensive research is quicker, less complicated, and more productive.
Sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the workshop will take place July 16 – 27, 2018 at RENCI, a University of North Carolina research institute located at 100 Europa Drive, Chapel Hill, NC. Travel and accommodations will be provided for participants, and a certificate of completion from UNC’s School of Information and Library Science will be awarded upon successful completion of the workshop.
For more information and a link to the application form, please see the UNC Cyber Carpentry Training website.

Miocene Disruptions of the Palouse River

John Bush and Pam Dunlap
March 22, 2018, 3:30-4:30pm, McClure Hall, Rm 209, University of Idaho
The presentation reveals the most up-to-date geologic history of the Miocene sequence. Rock chip chemistry from ten wells greater than 700 ft. (213 m) in depth was used to form a stratigraphic framework for the Grande Ronde, Wanapum, and Saddle Mountains Basalts and associated Latah sediments. Domestic well reports, test wells, outcrops, and regional comparisons were used to determine approximate time lines and develop paleogeographic reconstructions from early Grande Ronde to late Saddle Mountains time. Reconstructions include the distribution of basalt flows and the disruptions, obliterations, and reversals of drainages. The fact that the Palouse River once flowed through the basin, from Palouse to Pullman, should be of interest to those working on any phase of the geohydrology of the basin.

Idaho Conservation Corps: Conservation Internship Program

The Idaho Conservation Corps Internship program is an innovative AmeriCorps Program designed to provide hands on training and experience to those interested in pursuing employment with land and water resource management agencies, and other outdoor careers. The program is a cooperative effort designed to address community, environmental, and resource management projects.
Internships are currently open to applications and can be found here:

Dear Colleague Letter: Signals in the Soil (SitS)

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate for Engineering (ENG) in collaboration with its Directorates for Biological Sciences (BIO), Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE), and Geosciences (GEO), aims to encourage convergent research that transforms existing capabilities in understanding dynamic near-surface processes through advances in sensor systems and dynamic models. The goal of this Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) is to encourage submission of Early-Concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) proposals for early-stage, high-risk, high-reward research on technologies, models, and methods to better understand dynamic soil processes, including interactions of the macro- and microbiomes with soil nutrients, the rhizosphere, and various abiotic and biotic processes within the soil. In addition, for proposals that include topics relevant to both this DCL and the NSF “Rules of Life” Big Idea, submissions of Research Advanced by Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering (RAISE) proposals are encouraged. Researchers who are interested in submitting a SitS EAGER or RAISE proposal must first submit a SitS Research Concept Outline. Selected submitters of these Outlines will be invited to submit full EAGER or RAISE proposals for funding consideration.

Questions about this DCL should be directed to:
Research Concept Outlines should be no longer than 2 pages and must be submitted by April 13, 2018
For more information and to apply.

Dear Colleague Letter: Stimulating Research Related to Navigating the New Arctic (NNA), One of NSF’s 10 Big Ideas

Submit proposals by May 1, 2018, to be considered for FY 2018 funding.
This Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) invites proposals in FY 2018 that will advance NNA research through convergent approaches to emerging scientific, engineering, societal, and education challenges, and builds upon the NNA awards resulting from the FY 2017 DCL on Growing Convergence Research at NSF. A systems-based approach is strongly encouraged, including research that both contributes to, and leverages, large data sets from enhanced observational technology and networks. Knowledge co-production with local and indigenous communities, advancing public participation in research, and international partnerships are also strongly encouraged as possible means to achieve NNA objectives.

Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) – New Frontiers Data Analysis Program

Closing Deadline: 23 Aug 2018
The objective of the New Frontiers Data Analysis Program (NFDAP) is to enhance the scientific return from New Frontiers missions by broadening scientific participation in the analysis and interpretation of data returned by these missions. Other mission and non-mission data sets may be used to supplement these data in a supporting role, but all proposals require the use of data from at least one New Frontiers mission.
This program solicits research proposals to conduct scientific investigations utilizing or enhancing the utilization of data obtained by the New Frontiers missions. For the purposes of this solicitation, “data” is understood to include both uncalibrated and calibrated data as well as higher-order data products produced from the mission data.!{E8105664-4EB8-70E8-FEFB-A23972670A58}&path=open

ROSES 2018: Earth Science Applications: Water Resources

Closing Deadline: 17 Aug 2018
Within the NASA Earth Science Division, the Applied Sciences Program solicits proposals that develop and demonstrate the integration of NASA Earth science data and models into water resource management applications and decision support tools that can be sustained by operational partners or stakeholders. Remote sensing data, in combination with hydrologic models, can provide important information to assist water resource managers working with a wide range of partners and stakeholders. In order to make the best decisions possible and develop strategies that enhance the security and sustainability of water supplies, water resource managers and their stakeholders need timely information on water quality, supply, and demand.!{BE264B80-D499-0B71-8257-7E602C370A97}&path=open

ROSES 2018: Atmospheric Composition: Modeling and Analysis

Closing Deadline: 24 Aug 2018
coupled effects of changes in ozone depleting substance emissions and climate variations on ozone recovery and future atmospheric composition; enabling more accurate climate forecasts based on improved understanding of the forcings of global environmental change; and developing and refining better air quality forecasts that take into account the feedbacks between regional air quality and global climate variations. Achievements in these areas via advances in observations, data assimilation, and modeling enable improved descriptions and predictions of how changes in atmospheric composition affect ozone, climate, and air quality.!{E81E419F-870E-F33B-BD1E-9D1C4AC3430C}&path=open
