U of M to lead international virtual institute studying climatic and human effects on Earth
Date:12/12/2012

MINNEAPOLIS / ST. PAUL (12/12/2012) The National Science Foundation (NSF) announced that it will award an $720,000 grant to the University of Minnesota to lead an international, multi-university virtual institute for the study of Earth-surface systems, with a special emphasis on watersheds and deltas.

Linked Institutions for Future Earth (LIFE) is a new collaborative network of leading international research institutions, facilities and field sites working together on research related to predicting and understanding the impacts of climatic and human stresses on the landscape. LIFE seeks to produce research that informs policymakers and practitioners, while cultivating effective researcher exchange and mentoring, and generating innovative international public engagement toward landscape sustainability.

The project is funded through NSF's Science Across Virtual Institutes (SAVI), a mechanism to advance scientific understanding and excellence through the collaboration of scientists, engineers and educators across continents, cultures and disciplines.

Faculty members from the St. Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL) in the University of Minnesota's College of Science and Engineering, including Efi Foufoula-Georgiou (civil engineering), Chris Paola (earth sciences) and Vaughan Voller (civil engineering), will serve as the lead researchers of the project. Foufoula-Georgiou is also a resident fellow of the university's Institute on the Environment.

"Building upon the 10-year success of the NSF-funded National Center for Earth-surface Dynamics (NCED), this new virtual institute represents a significant step toward a broader understanding of the natural and human-induced changes that impact watersheds and deltas around the world," said LIFE lead researcher Efi Foufoula-Georgiou. "LIFE seeks to empower the next generation of Earth-system scientists, engineers and educators with depth, breadth and a global perspective on environmental su
