This project will investigate a new way to collect network data that would make answering social scientific questions involving social networks faster and more cost-effective. Networks are widely recognized across multiple disciplines as critically important for understanding how information spreads (communications), how illnesses spread (public health), how legislation is passed (political science), how norms and customs form (sociology), how companies and governments coordinate economic act…

NONTECHNICAL SUMMARYThe Division of Materials Research and the Chemistry Division contribute funds to this award. It supports theoretical and computational research, computational tool development, and education in support of the prediction of new materials and their properties by computer simulation. Materials scientists can model the "building blocks" of new materials, from atoms to molecules to nanoparticles, and solve those models on fast computers. Although much work is still needed…

This collaborative research project in the history of science will produce the first full English translations of the commentaries and scholia to Aratus's literary work, Phaenomena, a popular text poem dealing with astronomy of Greek and Roman antiquity. It presented an accessible summary of star lore based upon a now lost work of Eudoxus, and it was an immediate and lasting success as an introductory text to astronomy; an immense exegetical literature grew up around it. This literature inclu…

This funding is to support 20 U.S.-based early-career researchers (students and postdoctoral researchers) to attend the 2019 International Conference on Resource Sustainability - Cities (icRS Cities 2019) to be held in Adelaide, Australia on July 1-3, 2019. The conference serves as a platform for researchers and practitioners around the world with diverse background and expertise to share the most recent ideas, outcomes, and practices on resources management for sustainable urban systems. Giv…

This study will examine the role of the interactions and energy exchanges between mesoscale eddies, submesoscale currents, and near-inertial and tidal internal waves (IWs) in determining global dissipation and mixing patterns in the ocean. The focus of the research is on the fundamental physics that governs the interactions, with specific applications to the California Current System. The California Current System is an eddy-rich eastern boundary upwelling region where energetic near inertial…

The conference "Facets of Algebraic Geometry" will take place October 18-20, 2019 at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. The conference will focus on recent developments and promising directions for future work in the rich research areas of algebraic geometry near the interface with combinatorics. It is well-known that many of the central objects of study in algebraic geometry have intricate combinatorial structures. Furthermore, sophisticated tools from algebraic geometry, intersection th…

The permafrost (perennially frozen ground) regions occupy nearly a quarter of the Earth's terrestrial surface. Permafrost is experiencing large changes stemming from the unprecedented degree of environmental change being observed in the Arctic. Changes in the permafrost system have profound effects on the ecology, hydrology, geomorphology, and human occupation of cold environments. The main indicators of permafrost stability are permafrost temperature and thickness of the active-layer (layer …

Student success in mathematics correlates with positive identities, dispositions, and relationships towards the subject. As mathematics education research strives to understand historic inequities in mathematics for Black learners, small-scale research has described the relationships between identity, subjectivity, and positionality in Black learners as it relates to their achievement and interest in mathematics. This study builds on that descriptive work by seeking to describe trajectories t…

Forest disturbances, such as clear-cutting and fire, typically lead to large losses of carbon and nutrients from forests and their soils. Virtually all forests in the Eastern US are recovering from such disturbances, whether natural or human-caused. It is, however, not well understood what mechanisms control recovery times of forest carbon and nutrient stocks following disturbance. Also not well known is how plant growth, soil development and climate variation interactively regulate recoverie…

The overarching goal of the project is to understand tundra ecosystem change across landscape types and enable realistic forecasts of change across the Arctic. The power of the International Tundra Experiment (ITEX)- Arctic Observatory Network (AON) is founded on a capacity to synthesize and compare results across sites that use standardized sampling protocols. Specifically, this project will (1) maintain the data-streams at ITEX-AON sites in Alaska near Toolik Lake, Imnavait Creek, Utqiagvik…
