- The Department of the Interior's regional Climate Science Centers have awarded $10 million for research on how climate change will affect natural resources. The research will address the impacts of sea level rise on coastal resources and how changing temperatures and precipitation will affect vegetation, wildlife, and ecosystem services. The results of the research could help guide Interior's management of natural areas.
- The National Science Foundation's National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics has updated its online tool for accessing information about science and engineering in each state. The tool has the latest data available and allows users to generate science and engineering profiles that summarize state-specific data. Learn more at http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/states/start.cfm.
