NSIDC

Ausgeschrieben: 
National Snow and Ice Data Center, Colorado
Beschreibung: 
The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) supports research into our world's frozen realms: the snow, ice, glaciers, frozen ground, and climate interactions that make up Earth's cryosphere. NSIDC manages and distributes scientific data, creates tools for data access, supports data users, performs scientific research, and educates the public about the cryosphere. NSIDC distributes more than 500 cryospheric data sets for researchers, from both satellite and ground observations.

DRAGON

Ausgeschrieben: 
Delta Research and Global Observation Network
Beschreibung: 
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Wetlands Research Center (NWRC) has initiated an effort to improve management outcomes for massive deltaic coastal systems like that of the Mississippi River Delta by comparing the ecological, hydrological, geological, and biogeochemical processes of large deltaic systems across the globe. The Delta Research And Global Observation Network (DRAGON) is developing a science framework for comparing, integrating, and ultimately predicting the effects of key drivers and management practices in these large ecosystems. The DRAGON brings together scientists and managers to model the large river deltas around the world. Comparing North America's largest major river and delta, the Mississippi, with similar systems requires partnerships with scientists and managers from other continents. Following Hurricane Katrina, coastal resource managers have proposed a radical new approach to managing the Mississippi River levee, floodplain, navigation, and other key components of the delta. In light of this approach, there is an urgent need for better scientific information that connects to engineering and coastal restoration enterprises. The first DRAGON roundtable meeting was hosted by the USGS National Wetlands Research Center in the fall of 2007. Most recently the DRAGON Asia Summit was held in Siem Reap, Cambodia, in June 2009.

GRAME

Ausgeschrieben: 
Global Reporting and Assessment of the state of the Marine Environment
Beschreibung: 
Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) are being established as primary biodiversity management measures in all regions. Well managed marine protected areas can, for example, improve spawning rates and fish stocks. The series provide a snapshot of the situation in 2010. Their preparation has revealed major differences in data availability, analytical protocols and in preparedness and approaches for the management of marine biodiversity, natural resources and ecosystem services. They stand as a baseline for future assessments as part of the Regular Process for the Global Reporting and Assessment of the State of the Marine Environment (GRAME).
