7-1 Water Sustainability and Climate (WSC) (NSF)

One of the most urgent challenges facing the world today is ensuring an adequate supply and quality of water in light of both burgeoning human needs and climate variability and change. Despite its importance to life on Earth, there are major gaps in our basic understanding of water availability, quantity and dynamics, and the impact of both a changing and variable climate, and human activity, on the water system. The goal of the Water Sustainability and Climate (WSC) solicitation is to understand and predict the interactions between the water system and climate change, land use, the built environment, and ecosystem function and services through place-based research and integrative models. An individual may appear as Principal Investigator (PI), co-PI, other senior personnel or investigator on only one category 2 or category 3 or category 1 proposal. NSF 10-524 (GG 1/18/10)
