- Faculty & Researchers
Expand the role of the humanities in undergraduate education at two- and four-year institutions.
Utilize key geological, chemical, atmospheric (gas in ice cores), and biological records of climate system variability to provide insights into the mechanisms and rate of change that characterized Earth's past climate variability, the sensitivity of Earth's climate system to changes in forcing, and the response of key components of the Earth system to these changes.
Water recycling projects that develop and supplement urban and irrigation water supplies through water reuse, thereby improving efficiency, providing flexibility during water shortages, and diversifying the water supply.
Offer new insights into climate variability and marine ecosystems.
Provide science and technical support regarding the impacts of climate change in fish, wildlife, plants and ecological processes.
Theoretical and computational research relevant to the U.S. magnetic fusion energy sciences program.
Emerging technologies with the potential to create high-quality domestic manufacturing jobs and enhance the global competitiveness of the United States.
Design and implement stream restoration measures to restore these streams to their natural state.
Develop and implement programs for the benefit of wildlife and their habitat and species of Tribal cultural or traditional importance.
Build foundation of knowledge critical for solving current and future societal challenges. Priority areas are: Plant Health and Production and Plant Products; Animal Health and Production and Animal Products; Food Safety, Nutrition, and Health; Bioenergy, Natural Resources, and Environment; Agriculture Systems and Technology; and Agriculture Economics and Rural Communities.
