Description

Abstract Text:
One of the strategic goals identified in the USDA's 2014-2018 Strategic Plan focuses on "Ensur[ing] our national forests and private working lands are conserved, restored, and made more resilient to climate change, while enhancing our water resources." Maintaining resilient and sustainable agriculture, forests, and ecosystems depends on understanding the sources and demands on water availability. Such understanding is obviously critical in light of the projected impacts from on-going and future anthropogenic climate and environmental change. The proposed work addresses fundamental aspects of the tropical hydrologic cycle and its variability in space and time, building on the PI's extensive prior work in this area. Although the Tropics may seem remote from day-to-day agriculture practice in the United States (and in New Jersey, where the PI is based), the direct or indirect influences of tropical climate phenomena on the US may nevertheless be significant: one need only consider recent experience with the El Niño-related flooding in California or tropical cyclones impacting the Gulf Coast and Eastern seaboard. Moreover, the increasingly integrated and globalized nature of agriculture means that we need to look beyond our national borders. Knowledge of the current and potential future impacts of climate variability and change throughout the global tropics may influence decisions about domestic agricultural production or food security

It is important to recognize, and consider in any interpretation of Federal RePORTER data, that the publication and patent information cannot be associated with any particular year of a research project. The lag between research being conducted and the availability of its results in a publication or patent award varies substantially. For that reason, it's difficult, if not impossible, to associate a publication or patent with any specific year of the project. Likewise, it is not possible to associate a publication or patent with any particular supplement to a research project or a particular subproject of a multi-project grant.
