SESYNC Invites Proposals for Collaborative & Interdisciplinary Team-Based Research Projects
The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) requests proposals for collaborative and interdisciplinary team-based research projects under two programs: Pursuits and Workshops.
Using trees and environmental science as a backdrop, forest ecologist finds synergy with those excluded from science—and society.
When using the archeological past to examine sustainability, humans provide key functions in environments they inhabit.
The absence of humans in a landscape can have dramatic effects. Removing them from ecosystems can allow forests to advance, for example, but it can also cause human-dependent species to become extinct.
SESYNC invites applications to a short course on data and coding skills for socio-environmental synthesis. Applications due April 19, 2019.
"Summer Institute on Cyberinfrastructure for Socio-Environmental Synthesis"
This is a closed meeting for a funded group of visiting scholars.
The short course will combine lectures, hands-on computer labs, and project consultation designed to accelerate the adoption of cyber resources for all phases of data-driven research and dissemination.
"Linked socio-environmental responses to destructive wildfire: Are wildfires ‘hot moments’ for transformative adaptation?"
This Pursuit will convene an interdisciplinary team of researchers, in social and natural sciences, and examine national-level data sets to: (1) Assess social response to wildfire and possible adaptation or entrenchment through an inventory of housing change (rebuilding, sales, newdevelopment, land subdivision); (2) Investigate howsocial and ecological settings and impactsinfluence housing
