NSF awards $55 million in grants to study biocomplexity in the environment

namics of Coupled Natural and Human Systems (CNH); Coupled Biogeochemical Cycles (CBC); Genome-Enabled Environmental Science and Engineering (GENEN); and Instrumentation Development for Environmental Activities (IDEA).

Research project topics include: modeling the interactions among urban development, land cover change, and bird diversity; coupling rhizosphere biogeochemical cycles to plant growth under differing levels of carbon dioxide; meta-genome analysis of extreme microbial symbiosis; and developing instrumentation to measure the emission and transport of biological aerosols into the atmosphere.

Exploratory projects include: sustaining multiple functions for urban wetlands; simplification and recovery of soil biocomplexity following agricultural cultivation and forest logging; complementary development of new chemical sensor and probe microscopy techniques for environmental research in hydrothermal ecosystems; and developing portable devices to map the distribution of arsenic in groundwater in Bangladesh.
