Description

A decade after its founding, the CUAHSI Board of Directors is assessing what has been achieved and what remains to be done to advance interdisciplinary water science. Some services, such as data services, are progressing largely as envisioned. Other services, such as observatories, have emerged in different forms than was originally envisioned by CUAHSI. CUAHSI recently released a strategic plan [doi:10.4211/stratplan.201012] that expounded an ambitious agenda that far exceeds the available budget for these efforts. How do we create new funding opportunities to realize new infrastructure? We need to convince funding agencies that increased investment in water science will yield a large return in science discoveries and societal benefits. The community must develop a series of discrete infrastructure requests each of which will have a demonstrable science impact, a clear design and deployment strategy, and a governance approach. CUAHSI is seeking your ideas and will help to craft these requests to meet the needs of funding agencies for consideration.
