National Academies Call for Nominations: Earth System Science Study
May 4, 2020
The National Academies for Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) is seeking nominations for committee members to participate in a new study that will develop a compelling vision for a systems approach to studying the Earth. The study will be broad and multi-disciplinary, and will identify facilities, infrastructure, coordinating mechanisms, computing, and workforce development needed to support the vision. Ideal committee members will have experience working on integrated research questions and teams, as well as in taking a systems approach to research. Areas of particular interest include: behavioral, social, and economic sciences; atmospheric science; climate science; biology and ecology; oceanography; hydrology; geology and geophysics; cryosphere; computer and data science; education and workforce development; engineering; and complex systems, biogeochemistry, and critical zones.
The deadline for nominations by Wednesday, May 13.
The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2021 budget of $8.5 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
