The “Guidance for Tahoe SNPLMA Science Researchers” is available to guide both prospective and currently funded investigators regarding administrative aspects of the program, including permitting, reporting and publishing.
This Request for Proposals solicits research projects that will address the following science themes and subthemes within the Lake Tahoe Basin:
|Forest Health||1a: Informing decisions for multi-objective forest management|
|1b: Improving WEPP-based analyses of forest management activities at the watershed scale|
|1c: Impact of climate change on ecological communities and the evaluation of adaptation strategies|
|Water Quality||2a: Understanding the impacts of aquatic invasive species|
|2b: Quantifying the benefits of urban storm water management|
|2c: Increasing our understanding of special status species and communities|
|2d: Technical review of SEZ definition and classification system|
|Air Quality||3a: Improving the estimates of atmospheric deposition|
|3b: Managing air pollutants|
|Integrating Science||4a: Understanding current and future resource conditions through analysis of remote sensing data|
|4b: Identifying environmental indicators and development of approaches for monitoring and evaluation|
The Tahoe Science Consortium convenes a panel of scientists along with representatives of management agencies who collaboratively generate an annual list of research priorities, or science themes, ultimately approved by the Secretary of Interior.
