The Great Basin Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit (GB-CESU) encompasses the Great Basin region including portions of five states: Nevada, California, Idaho, Oregon and Utah, and is a partnership among 14 universities and eight federal agencies.
A consortium of partners who coordinate and collaborate on science delivery in the Great Basin. Our mission is to increase communication and coordination among the partner organizations in order to enhance the effectiveness of their research, management, outreach and funding activities.
USDA-funded ‘Native Waters on Arid Lands’ brings together scientists, 1862 and 1994 land-grant institutions and tribal communities of Great Basin and Southwest to address agricultural water challenges
The Tahoe Science Consortium (TSC) was formed through a memorandum of understanding in August 2005 to foster a greater level of collaboration between research organizations and resource management agencies. The primary objective of the TSC is to promote science in support of the preservation, restoration, and enhancement of the unique environmental values of the Lake Tahoe Basin.
A collaborative effort of two of Nevada’s major research institutions, DRI and the University of Nevada, Reno.
This $3.8 million project will work toward integrating science and water policy research to identify the expected impacts of climate change and solutions for protecting valuable water resources throughout northern Nevada, focusing on the Truckee-Carson River System as a model for snow-fed arid-land river systems across the American West.
