Agricultural Ecology Program: Understanding sources and sinks ofnutrients and sediment in the upper Susquehanna River basin
Integrated modeling of nutrients and sediment across spatial scales
Large watershed-scale models
Both the SCOPE/NANI approach and ReNuMa will be ground-truthed against the accumulating body of data on fluxes of water, N, P, and sediments from the upper Susquehanna River basin being collected by the USGS, the New York State DEC, and others.
Collaborative modeling funding opportunity
Direct salary support ($10,000-$15,000/yr for several years contingent on future funding) will be provided to 2 or 3 individuals or teams to assist with modeling at plot- to field- to farm-scales.
The required emphasis for supported research will be on integration across scales, collaboration with the main project staff, and understanding the flows of nutrients and sediment in the Susquehanna, and not on the development of new models per se. Thus, the expectation is that only appropriate small spatial scale modeling efforts that already have other sources of support will be further funded by this project.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Bob Howarth (rwh2; 5-6175) for more information.
