National Science Foundation advisory committee on environmental research and education

Recommendations for the National Science Foundation (NSF)'s next decade of environmental research and education programs, prepared by NSF's Advisory Committee for Environmental Research and Education, will be released on January 8, 2003, in the report entitled Complex Environmental Systems: Synthesis for Earth, Life, and Society in the 21st Century.

Among the report's findings are that NSF is the only federal agency that has the scope to carry out fundamental, complex environmental science and engineering systems research across broad areas, which involves including the social sciences, crossing disciplinary and organizational boundaries, and integrating new knowledge in education. Environmental programs need to be expanded, according to the report, in the social sciences, cyber-infrastructure, observing systems, and education. Synthesis- based research is a touchstone for environmental research and education, and long-term support is necessary to fulfill its promise.
