OU researchers collaborate on $20 million NSF EPSCoR grant
Date:6/14/2013

University of Oklahoma researchers will collaborate with researchers from Oklahoma State University, the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation and the University of Tulsa to advance understanding of how socio-ecological systems can adapt sustainably to increased climate change and variability in the state.

Oklahoma was one of five states to receive a $20 million National Science Foundation Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research grant to perform strategically aligned, innovative research over the next five years. The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education will provide an annual $800,000 match.

"The knowledge obtained from this project will be used to empower managers to effectively adapt social and ecological systems to climate variability and educate Oklahomans about the expected consequences of regional environmental change," said Alicia Knoedler, co-principal investigator on the project and OU associate vice president for research.

Three interlinked research focus areas will examine complex human, climate and natural resource systems. An observatory network, a forecasting system and a decision support system will each address social and ecological systems. The project is innovative in addressing each of these areas in tandem as well as their interactions:

(1) A socio-ecological observatory augmented by Oklahoma's existing weather, water and climate observational assets to specifically focus on climate-responsive and adaptive components of coupled human and natural systems research in Oklahoma.

(2) A socio-ecological modeling and prediction system to integrate qualitative and quantitative data from the observatories and to examine systematically insights from disciplinary and integrated perspectives.

(3) A decision-support system to provide researchers, educators and practitioners with the data, models, tools and scenarios to explore and understand the social and ecological impacts of
