Description

The current NSF Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) Research Infrastructure Improvement grant establishes the Idaho Experimental Watershed Network. This award establishes a Grand Challenge for Idaho in the Geosciences. The research focus initially comprises five research teams whose efforts are driven by two scientific goals. 1. To understand and quantify the fluxes of carbon, water and nutrients in complex landscapes 2. To understand how variations in fluxes of carbon, water, and nutrients ramify across trophic levels Emphasis is placed on collaboration, defined as research and education linkages between disciplines, between the Idaho institutions of higher learning, and with researchers throughout the US and internationally. The presentation will provide an overview of the entire program and then focus specifically on examples of hydrologic research not covered by other talks at the Spring Runoff Conference. Since community science and collaboration is the focus of the RII, the objective of the talk will be to present ongoing activities that other Conference participants may wish to join.
