Description:
Abstract:
This management and coordination effort supports several of the initiatives listed in the DOI science plan. The USGS representative will participate in CERP and RECOVER meetings and share information with USGS Priority Ecosystem Science (PES) staff, represent USGS in the SFWMD Biscayne Bay work group meetings, and assist DOI partners with obtaining and using USGS technical data and information on the Greater Everglades area.
Purpose:
This project includes support of Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan/REstoration COordination and VERification (CERP/RECOVER), assistance with Greater Everglades Priority Ecosystem Science coordination, and USGS liaison with the South Florida Water Management District.

Participates in workshops to integrate science towards specific DOI, CERP &/or RECOVER science needs.

Work includes: 1. Sharing information on all CERP meetings attended with GE PES and other USGS staff as appropriate. 2. Coordinating USGS PIs initial input on the yearly requests for project ideas (topics forms). 3. Representing the USGS in the CERP Interagency Modeling Center housed in the South Florida Water Management District. Helps coordinate work of the USGS/Joint Ecological Modeling Laboratory (JEM Lab). Ensures technology transfer and science synthesis of USGS studies/products at the IMC. Provides progress activity reports to IMC managers on work/tasks being completed by the USGS/JEM Lab. Participates in IMC meetings including the weekly modeling service requests meetings and IMC board meetings when requested.

B. Work with DOI, SFWMD and other Restoration Partners to Ensure Technology Transfer and Science Synthesis.

The PI represents the USGS in the SFWMD Biscayne Bay science coordination work group meetings. Provides technical information to DOI partners managing and conducting work on Biscayne Bay. Ensures technology transfer and science synthesis of USGS studies/products at this Biscayne Bay work group and assists technology transfer and science synthesis of USGS studies/products within the Greater Everglades area.
