OU researchers collaborate on $20 million NSF EPSCoR grant

decisions related to a specific need through a newly-developed statewide water portal.

The Oklahoma project (1) leverages core strengths in weather-water-climate, environmental sociology, high-performance computing, data assimilation, numerical modeling, remote sensing, agriculture and terrestrial ecology; (2) adds new faculty, capabilities and infrastructure, particularly in social sciences, coupled human and natural systems research and ecological informatics; and (3) significantly advances efforts to integrate these strengths around the central research theme of socio-ecological adaptation to climate change, with a particular focus on water availability.

Expected outcomes for this project include: a first-of-its-kind statewide socio-ecological observatory network designed to provide a systems-level understanding of the coupled human and natural system under a variable climate; a fully integrated socio-ecological modeling and prediction capability designed to integrate qualitative and quantitative approaches and to systematically examine insights from both disciplinary and integrated perspectives; a pilot decision-support system that provides researchers, educators and practitioners the data, models, tools and scenarios to explore and understand the social and ecological impacts of management and policy decisions; a cross-disciplinary and diverse team of researchers focused on adaptation to climate change research; and cross-disciplinary undergraduates, graduate and post-doctoral training in coupled human and natural systems research.

Oklahomans will benefit from this significant investment in a variety of ways. Outreach activities will fully engage students and the public through new STEM programs, mentoring and workshops specifically targeting females, Native Americans and other minorities, while K-12 activities will focus on rural populations. A STEM-educated workforce is a central visions of the state's science and technology p
