The purpose of this project is to test the hypothesis that the SESYNC process for team-synthesis research can be accelerated by new cyberinfrastructure specific to the research question, particularly when the domain scientists participate in the development process of the cyber tools. The socio-environmental research will be focused on the perception, role, and function of green infrastructure across urban and climate gradients in the U.S. We propose bringing together domain water scientists (social and natural), computer scientists, software developers, engineers, and stakeholders in testing our proposed hypothesis-driven science. We will also engage an external observer to document the social dynamics of the group and evolution in their interactions. As driving science for our advanced prototyping activity, we will investigate the role and function of green infrastructure (GI) to address stormwater issues in urban watersheds, considering both delivery of key ecosystem services and acceptability and valuation by residents.
