“Science” synthesis breakout 8/25/05

Research agenda as part of or aligned with NPN

Framing issues and questions

Research topics that could be addressed

Connecting science to monitoring, outreach

and decision making

Promoting communication across researchers

Additional Science components for NPN to consider

slide2

A strong scientific research component is necessary to guide procedures and structure, to assure quality and effectivenessof the observational network, and to make NPN “pay off”.

However, to what extent the research component is

directly integrated into the NPN program, vs. affiliated as an outside aligned activity, needs clarification. A broad research agenda may be too complex and too expensive to include a in the NPN monitoring effort. But should there be a modicum of analysis and within NPN to keep the operational staff engaged with the data and the research community?

slide3

Research areas:

trends and variability

social and economic, including vulnerability

hazards (health, ecosystem damage, etc)

ecological function and structure

National scale, nested network required to address key q’s:

weather and climate variations occur at regional to continental

scales. Nested intensive & distributed network provides opportunity

to inform questions regarding mechanisms and processes

revealed in spatial and temporal structure. Ultimately, NPN

can inform decisionmakers via a variety of scientific processes:

observing, monitoring, analysis, modeling, and predicting

Framing questions:

*How can NPN be used to observe/detect the effects of

climate change and variability on biota

*What are vulnerabilities in Nation’s agricultural system?

*How does land use affect spatial patterns of phenology?

*Effects of changing composition of the atmosphere?

slide4

Promoting interactions across researchers

Web site

Workshops (Regional or topical)

Professional meeting sessions

Seed grants

Graduate course offerings (IGERTs, etc):

“Intellectual engineering of phenology as a science

from flower to the globe”.

slide5

Potential Additional Science components for NPN

IT scientists -- data sharing and information transfer

Social scientists to study and advise on:

organizational structure & dynamics

researcher—decisionmaker interactions

Research translators for general public and decisionmakers
