Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Solicits Proposals for Transit Climate Change Adaptation Assessment Pilots - Proposals Due August 25, 2011

The pilots will fund transit agencies or partnerships with transit agencies to assess the vulnerability of transit agency assets and services to climate change hazards such as heat waves and flooding.  The pilots will also assess initial adaptation strategies and link these strategies to transit agency organizational structures and activities.  One of the pilots will focus on demonstrating the integration of adaptation assessment within an asset management system.  Each pilot will submit to FTA a final report on the activities conducted, main findings, and applicability to other transit agencies.  FTA contemplates making approximately four cooperative agreement awards, ranging from $50,000 to $175,000 each.  Total funding available is $525,000.  Eligible recipients are either 1) a public transportation provider or, 2) a university, non-profit, private, or public entity working in partnership with a public transportation provider.  For more information, visit:

National Science Foundation (NSF) Seeks Grant Funding Proposals under Water Sustainability and Climate Program for Understanding the Interactions between the Water System and Climate - Applications Due October 19, 2011

This NSF Water Sustainability and Climate Program seeks to understand and predict the interactions between the water system and climate change, land use (including agriculture, managed forest, and rangeland systems), the built environment, and ecosystem function and services through place-based research and integrative models.  Studies of the water system using models and/or observations at specific sites singly or in combination that allow for spatial and temporal extrapolation to other regions, as well as integration across the different processes in that system are encouraged, especially to the extent that they advance the development of theoretical frameworks and predictive understanding.  Eligible applicants include universities and colleges, non-profit, non-academic organizations, for-profit organizations, and other federal agencies and federally funded research and development centers.  NSF expects to give out 26 awards.  For more information, visit:

WateReuse Research Foundation and WateReuse California Release Report on Direct Potable Reuse: A Path Forward

The report identifies the information and research needed to provide a basis for the feasibility of direct potable reuse (DPR), or the introduction of purified water into a water supply distribution system or the raw water supply immediately upstream of a water treatment plant.  The primary focus of the report is implementing DPR in California; however, the topics discussed (including issues regarding public acceptance, engineering, economics, and regulations) may be applicable to the broader water reuse community.  To view the report, visit: www.nwri-usa.org/reuse.htm. 

University of California, Berkeley Geospatial Innovation Facility Develops Cal-Adapt Climate Visualization Tools

Cal-Adapt is an online resource designed to provide a view of how climate change may affect California at the local level. The Cal-Adapt website provides the tools and data for researchers, decision makers, and the general public, to better understand the risks posed by climate change.  Localized analyses available within this site may help to better inform effective climate change adaptation decisions and policies.  For more information, visit: http://cal-adapt.org/  and http://www.climatechange.ca.gov/adaptation/cal-adapt.html .   

COMET Program Releases Coastal Climate Change Module

This 3-hour module provides an overview of the impacts coastal regions are experiencing, and may continue to experience, as a result of Earth's changing climate.  The module's intended audience is NOAA Sea Grant agents and others involved in coastal extension work, but the content should be relevant to anyone who works with, lives in, or holds an interest in coastal regions.  The module incorporates interactive exercises to help users translate complex climate graphics, and showcases a video series demonstrating effective strategies for communicating climate science.  Users are also presented with a range of resources, including an array of conceptual animations and science data visualizations that illustrate key coastal climate science concepts.  To access the module, visit: https://www.meted.ucar.edu/training_module.php?id=772.

North American Lake Management Society (NALMS) to Host 31st International Symposium of the North American Lake Management Society - Diverse and Sustainable Lake Management - on October 26-28, 2011 in Spokane, WA

As lake management issues continue to affect a wide range of stakeholders, it is increasingly important to gather key figures within those communities to openly discuss and understand how the interests of others may be affected by their own interests.  Scientific and environmental minds will offer a variety of relevant subject matter to be covered in breakout educational sessions, and networking opportunities will allow for collaboration with lake property association members and other interested parties.  While information is now available to us from many sources, the spirit of the Symposium allows for important interactions to occur between those from scientific, environmental, recreational, residential, governmental, and other communities to discuss issues important and relevant to all concerned with water management issues.  For more information on the Symposium, visit: http://www.cvent.com/events/nalms-2011-spokane-washington/event-summary-0819feed2a9549578c4910e8eb46bf!

Save The Date and Call for Abstracts for the Global Conference on Oceans, Climate, and Security - May 21-23, 2012 in Boston, MA

The Global Conference on Oceans, Climate, and Security will focus on raising the awareness level of the threat of climate change to our oceans and the consequent threat to our human and national security; identifying and prioritizing the knowledge gaps in science and technology, which inhibit understanding, response, and adaption to future threats; and generating comprehensive human security policy and governance recommendations reflecting the climate, ocean, and security continuum.  Abstracts are due by September 15, 2011.  For more information, please visit: http://www.fedcenter.gov/Announcements/index.cfm?id=18325 .
