Description

In this presentation I will provide an overview of program activities and funding opportunities for water research and education at NSF, focusing on (1) cross-cutting (inter-directorate) initiatives and (2) opportunities in the primary engineering and hydrologic science programs that fund water resources research. I also will present my perspectives regarding future trends in research and funding based on my experiences as program director for Environmental Engineering for the past three years. One important trend is the development of national-scale environmental observatory networks, such as NEON and WATERS Network, which will be cyber-enabled systems for large-scale interdisciplinary environmental studies. I will briefly describe these initiatives and how they are expected to transform the ways that research and education in environmental engineering and the hydrologic sciences will be done in the future.
