Visit Arches and discover a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. This red rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations, refresh you with its trails, and inspire you with its sunsets.
A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,310' Denali. Wild animals large and small roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.
DOINews: Apply for FY 2015 Research Funds from the South Central CSC
The USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center (NCCWSC) and seven of the eight (Alaska, North Central, Northeast, Pacific Islands, South Central, Southeast and Southwest) Department of the Interior Climate Science Centers (CSCs) are seeking Statements of Interest (SOIs) and proposals for funding in Fiscal Year (FY) 2015.
Research projects that support NCCWSC/CSC priority science needs are important for providing natural and cultural resource managers with the science, tools, and information they need to develop and execute management strategies that address the impacts of climate change on a broad range of natural and cultural resources. FY 15 science needs for NCCWSC and the CSCs are described in the NCCWSC/CSC Funding Opportunity Guidance Document, which can be found at https://nccwsc.usgs.gov/ResearchFunds
The deadline for submission of Statements of Interest is June 17, 2014.
Only the following may submit proposals in response to this Funding Opportunity:
Institutions that are either Host Institutions or Consortium Members for the requesting DOI Climate Science Center (exceptions are made for (1) projects spanning multiple CSC regions and (2) NCCWSC-sponsored projects) and
USGS centers, field stations, laboratories, Cooperative Research Units, etc.
Each proposal must have a Principal Investigator (PI) from an eligible institution. Parties from other organizations (Federal, State, Tribal, or other) can participate and receive funds via sub-award from the Principal Investigator but the proposal submitter and PI must be from an eligible applicant, as described above. Non-eligible applicants are encouraged to establish working partnerships with one of the recognized eligible applicants to seek participation as part of a project lead by a CSC/university consortium member or USGS facility.
