GUMO Section 110 Two-Phase Geo-archaeological Study - 0 views

  •  
    The proposed two-phase geoarchaeological study by the University of New Mexico, Office of Contract Archeology (OCA) will provide a systematic sample documentation of geoarchaeological data within both the active and stabilized gypsum dune fields at GUMO. The sites will be located with GPS units with sub-meter accuracy that can be tied into the GUMO GIS system. The information collected in the field during the Phase I Study will be used to create inferences about the types of sites and their periods of occupation. The systematic collection of data will also allow OCA to spatially analyze the data and assess whether the ⿿Horizontal Stratigraphy Model⿝ applies at GUMO. If so, GUMO archaeologists may be able to utilize the defined zones of occupation within the dunes to predict the periods of occupations for other yet to be discovered sites. In addition, this research may also contribute to other scientific fields. For example, based on the locations of sites in proximity to the leading edge of the dune field, it may be possible to evaluate changes in the rate of dune movement per year or over several millennia. Finally, information gleaned from the Phase II Study may be useful in understanding the relationships between the development of the gypsum dunes and late Pleistocene-early Holocene paleoclimates in GUMO. These data could, in turn, provide a new understanding about the use of the landscape by GUMO⿿s earliest occupants, the Paleoindians and the evolution of site usage and occupation following the Paleoindians.

CAVE HABS Documentation for the Superintendent Building - 0 views

  •  
    Administered since 1933 through cooperative agreements with the National Park Service, the Library of Congress, and the private sector, ongoing programs such as Historic American Building Survey of the National Park Service have recorded America's built environment in multi-format surveys comprising thousands of measured drawings, large-format photographs, and written histories for more than 38,600 historic structures and sites dating from Pre-Columbian times to the twentieth century. This project will focus on the physical documentation and creation of measured drawings, large format photography, and a historic context for historic buildings at Carlsbad Caverns National Park. The buildings are the Superintendent Building and the Mission 66-era Six-Plex. The project will entail the following: HABS Standard I, Documentation Level 1, Part 1 of which includes a full set of measured drawings depicting existing or historic conditions. The project will also include the field notes necessary to develop the measured drawings, this field notes will follow HABS standards which are described as sketches of floor plan, sections and elevations generally not to exact scale although often drawn from measurements, where the features are shown in proper relation and proportion to one another. This also includes large format photography and a historic context of the buildings and site.

Conferences Principal Investigators should carefully read the program solicitation "Conferences and Workshops in the Mathematical Sciences" (link below) to obtain important information regarding the substance of proposals for conferences, workshops, summer/winter schools, and similar activities. For conference proposals with budgets not exceeding $50,000, which in accordance with NSF policy can be reviewed internally at NSF, the following target dates are in effect: For an event that will start on a date prior to October 1 during a given calendar year, the proposal should be submitted in September of the previous year. For an event that will start in the period October 1 through December 31 of a given year, the proposal should be submitted in April of the same year. A conference proposal with a budget request exceeding $50,000 should be submitted at least eight months before the event is scheduled to take place, in order to allow time for external review.

Defense Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Education Consortium (... - 0 views

  •  
    n accordance with 10 USC §2192, Improvement of education in technical fields: general authority regarding education in science, mathematics, and engineering, the National Defense Education Program (NDEP) K-16 Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education and outreach is seeking to strategically implant a vehicle to identify and support stronger guidelines for conducting K-16 education and outreach programs. The Department of Defense seeks to diversify its portfolio of support and increase focus on efforts that support the Force of the Future, and align with the Federal and DoD STEM strategies. Enhancing the permeability of ideas into DoD's workforce, especially the STEM workforce, through alliances with academia, industry and various non-traditional partners in STEM should deliver far-reaching sustainable and scalable programs and partnerships. While aligning with the DoD STEM mission, "to attract, inspire, and develop exceptional STEM talent across the education continuum to enrich our current and future DoD workforce to meet defense technological challenges," the Defense STEM Education Consortium (DSEC) should collaboratively work with the Government to provide a cohesive strategy to meet the vision, roles, and goals outlined in the DoD STEM Strategic Plan

GeoPRISMS Program - 0 views

  •  
    GeoPRISMS (Geodynamic Processes at Rifting and Subducting Margins) Program investigates the coupled geodynamics, earth surface processes, and climate interactions that build and modify continental margins over a wide range of timescales. These interactions cross the shoreline and have applications to margin evolution and dynamics, construction of stratigraphic architecture, accumulation of economic resources, and associated geologic hazards and environmental management. The GeoPRISMS Program includes two broadly integrated science initiatives (Subduction Cycles and Deformation (SCD)and Rift Initiation and Evolution (RIE)), linked by five overarching scientific topics and themes, where transformative advances are likely to occur in the decade 2011-2020, and where a focused scientific program could be most effective. These overarching science topics include 1) Origin and evolution of continental crust; 2) Fluids, magmas and their interactions; 3) Climate-surface-tectonics feedbacks; 4) Geochemical cycles; and 5) Plate boundary deformation and geodynamics. Each of the initiatives has identified primary sites for focused investigations, as well as thematic studies that will complement primary site studies. The GeoPRISMS Office, supported separately by an award to Pennsylvania State University, is tasked with community outreach and engagement through conferences, meetings, and maintenance of a website.
