Mr. David Bowling University of Utah Department of Biology Salt Lake City, UT My primary research interests are in ecosystem ecology, particularly the biogeochemical cycling of carbon and water within terrestrial ecosystems. Work in my lab focuses on examining carbon and water relations of plants and soils at the ecosystem scale, with the principal goals of understanding 1) ecosystem physiological processes, 2) factors influencing the carbon and hydrological cycles within ecosystems, 3) biosphere-atmosphere fluxes of carbon dioxide, water vapor, and their isotopes, and 4) ecosystem water balance, particularly in ecosystems of the western United States. This work is interdisciplinary in nature, requiring collaboration with colleagues from a variety of scientific disciplines, including plant physiology, soil science, hydrology, micrometeorology, and geochemistry.

James Hendee National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Ocean Chemistry and Ecosystems Division Miami, FL The Ocean Chemistry and Ecosystems Division (OCED) is an interdisciplinary team of scientists working to support NOAA's mission to understand our oceans and coasts, to aid conservation and management of marine ecosystems, and to predict changes to these valuable resources. We focus on the forces and stressors that cause ecological responses and work on scales spanning from the local to the global. The Division works on a variety of important topics including the global rise of CO2, the ability of our ecosystems to support marine life, the safety of our swimming waters, and the health of coral reefs here and across the globe. The OCED executes projects in an integrated fashion and in close collaboration with our partners (intergovernmental, academic, international, and NOAA). The OCED team includes scientists from the Cooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Studies (CIMAS), an institution that includes nine of south Florida's and the Caribbean's premier universities. The scope and direction of research is guided by strategic plans developed by NOAA as a whole and by the Ocean and Atmospheric Research (OAR) Line Office. Description of Scientific Projects: Coral modeling and monitoring, coral bleaching, coral larvae and genetics, genomics and other omics, environmental microbiology, ocean carbon dynamics, ecosystem assessments, environmental bioinformatics.

Edward Maibach, MPH, PhD George Mason University Center of Excellence in Climate Change Communication Research Fairfax, VA Founded in August, 2007, the Center of Excellence in Climate Change Communication Research (CECCCR)is the nation's first research center devoted exclusively to addressing the communication challenges associated with global climate change. While the scientific evidence of climate change has never been clearer, exactly how to foster widespread policy and behavior change to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is less well understood. Designing effective behavior change and advocacy campaigns will require a thorough understanding of various audiences, including how best to reach and communicate with them, and how best to make it easy for them to adopt new behaviors. Our Center is dedicated to addressing these challenges. Our efforts are focused on four strategic areas: 1. Engaging a broad range of research experts and business, non-profit and government leaders to identify the most pressing communication, marketing and behavior change research questions. 2. Conducting communication, marketing and behavior change research to learn how best to educate, motivate and assist people and businesses in reducing their - and our nation's - "carbon footprint" 3. Providing technical assistance to a broad range of organizations (in the public, non-profit and private sectors) so as to improve their climate change education, communication, advocacy and behavior change programs. 4. Encouraging the development of similar initiatives abroad, especially in nations where effective societal responses are urgently needed to avert the climate crisis (such as China, India, Brazil and Russia).

Scott Saleska University of Arizona Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Tucson, AZ My research interests focus on ecosystem ecology and biogeochemistry, particularly carbon and water cycling within terrestrial ecosystems. Work in my group focuses on examining carbon, water, and trace gas cycling through plants and soils at the ecosystem scale, with the principal goals of understanding how large scale biogeochemical processes can be importantly influenced by physiological, demographic, and ecological interactions within and among species. A principle research tool is the measurement of biosphere-atmosphere fluxes of carbon dioxide, water vapor, trace gases, and their isotopes. This work is highly interdisciplinary, requiring scientific background from a variety of scientific disciplines, including ecology, plant physiology, soil science, hydrology, micrometeorology, and geochemistry.

Patrick Sheridan NOAA/OAR/ESRL Global Monitoring Division Global Radiation and Aerosols Boulder, CO Dr. Sheridan's primary responsibility is to oversee the operation and data flow of the NOAA/ESRL Global Federated Aerosol Network. The goals of this surface aerosol monitoring program are to characterize means, variability, and trends of climate-forcing properties of different types of aerosols, and to understand the factors that control these properties. The measurements from this network provide critical ground-truth for satellite measurements, as well as key aerosol parameters for global-scale models. Current research interests of Dr. Sheridan include working to improve and simplify the measurement of aerosol optical properties to better determine their effects on aerosol radiative forcing, efforts to reduce the uncertainties in aerosol black/brown carbon and aerosol light absorption measurements, investigation of water uptake and cloud nucleation properties of atmospheric aerosols, and working to better incorporate aerosol measurements from surface monitoring stations into global climate models.
