Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit (CESU), Rocky Mountain CESU: The Earth Surface Dynamics Program (ESD) of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is offering a grant and/or cooperative agreement opportunity to a faculty scientist at a university affiliated with the Rocky Mountains Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Unit (CESU) who has the ability to conduct research in topics related to linked geologic and biogeochemical processes in dryland ecosystem dynamics that meet the goals of the Earth Surface Dynamics Program. The long-term goal of the ESD, as described in the ESD Five-Year Plan for FY 2006-2010, that is most relevant to the required research described here, is: . Develop a fundamental understanding of processes that govern interactions among climate, earth surface processes, and .. terrestrial ecosystems The opportunity would be conducted under the ESD-funded project, "Effects of climatic variability and land use on American drylands" (Drylands Project) The project goal most relevant to this required research is: . Examine interactions among geologic, hydrologic, biologic, land use and atmospheric processes in drylands to (i) understand contemporary physical and ecological landscapes; (ii) determine how physical and ecological processes interact to influence ecosystem dynamics, including plant invasions; and (iii) document how sediment (soil) erosion and deposition by wind and water over time is affected by climatic variability and by geologic, physiographic, and land-use setting. There is one research topic under consideration, as listed below. Award Information: The amount of funding available for the research topic is expected to be $23,000 if a one year project and less than $25,000 for the second year if a multi-year project. As of the posting date of this announcement the Federal appropriations process for 2007 was just completed. The Drylands project will make one award for the research topic described herein for Fiscal Year 2007. Work performance under this award may start after August 1, 2007, and the proposed work should be completed one year from the start date. A multi-year proposal may be submitted as described in the "Multi-Year Proposal" section below. Collaborative proposals between an external organization and the USGS Drylands Project may be funded as a cooperative agreement or as a grant depending upon the extent and type involvement of the USGS in the work. Discussion and coordination between internal and external researchers is encouraged; however, USGS personnel are prohibited from helping an external organization prepare its proposal for competitive funding. Selected Research Topic: The USGS ESD Program conducts research to achieve a whole-system understanding of the interrelations among earth surface processes, ecological systems, and human activities. Activities of the program focus on documenting, analyzing, and modeling the character of past and present environments and the geological, biological, hydrological, and geochemical processes involved in environmental change so that future environmental changes and impacts can be anticipated.. ESD research through this opportunity on geologic and ecologic studies of American drylands is being coordinated by Richard Reynolds (303-236-1303; To help applicants understand the scope of the research being conducted in this effort, the selected topic being addressed is listed below. The ESD Program expects collaborative research with on-going USGS work under the Drylands Project. Applicants are encouraged to contact R. Reynolds to discuss collaborative research opportunities, and to provide documentation illustrating how the proposed research will address ESD and Drylands Project research needs.
