The Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBE) and the Directorate for Geosciences (GEO) seek to increase collaboration between the geosciences and the social and behavioral sciences by augmenting funding for interdisciplinary research related to Environment, Society, and the Economy. Human systems have contributed to environmental changes, and human systems will need to respond and adapt to both predicted and unexpected environmental changes. A number of unresolved issues remain, including, but not limited to, the following. The role, pace, and impact of predicted regional and local environmental change will need to be factored into human decision processes with careful attention paid to uncertainties. Strategies need to be identified and assessed that are best suited to cover replacement costs for lost services or recover from the effects of natural hazards under specific scenarios. It will be important to compare the impacts of various carbon management efforts, such as "cap and trade." It might be possible to factor valuation of ecosystem services into economic activities in such a way as to inform decisions about land and water use. There may be ways to include environmental risks or impacts in cost structures. New methods to manage the differential effects of global change on national economies may be developed. Relevant proposals must be submitted to an existing SBE or GEO program according to the program's regular target or deadline dates. This is not a special competition or new program. NSF 09-031
Grant Opportunities for Academic Liaison with Industry (GOALI) aims to synergize university-industry partnerships by making project funds or fellowships/traineeships available to support an eclectic mix of industry-university linkages.

The primary objective of the EDMAP component of the NCGMP is to train the next generation of geologic mappers. To do this NCGMP provides funds for graduate and selected undergraduate students in academic research projects that involve geologic mapping as a major component. Through these cooperative agreements NCGMP hopes to expand the research and educational capacity of academic programs that teach earth science students the techniques of geologic mapping and field data analysis. Another important goal is to increase the level of communication between the Nation's geologic surveys (both State Geological Surveys and the USGS) and geologic mappers in the academic community. 10HQPA0004 (GG 9/3/09)
