NSF awards grants for research on coupled natural and human systems


Title: Coupled Natural and Human Systems in Fire-Prone Landscapes: Interactions, Dynamics, and Adaptation
PI (Principal Investigator): John Bolte, University of Oregon

Summary: This project will examine how biophysical systems, management actions, and socioeconomic influences interact to affect sustainability in fire-prone landscapes in a time of climate change. The researchers will combine models of land-management decision-making, vegetative succession and fire ignition and spread, and landscape evaluators of socioeconomic and ecological system performance.

Title: Hydrologic Transformation and Human Resilience to Climate Change in the Peruvian Andes
PIs: Jeffrey Bury, University of California-Santa Cruz; Mark Carey, Washington and Lee University; Kenneth Young, University of Texas-Austin; Bryan Mark, Ohio State University

Summary: Scientists will evaluate the new system of freshwater governance emerging in the Andes Mountains of Peru, as well as how glacial dynamics are transforming meltwater rates as glaciers rapidly recede. The researchers will examine the combined effects of glacier recession on downstream watersheds, the resilience of human livelihood systems, and the ways in which economic change and shifting water governance are factors in this hydrologic, ecological, and social transformation.

Title: Acequia Water Systems Linking Culture and Nature: Integrated Analysis of Community Resilience to Climate and Land-Use Changes
PI: Alexander Fernald, New Mexico State University

Summary: The acequias of the southwestern United States are community irrigation systems based largely on ancient technology introduced to the region by 16th-century settlers. This project will examine the socioeconomic and natural resource pressures that threaten the existence of contemporary acequia-based communities. The researchers will explore links among acequia communities and associa
