Summary

The Geological Survey is offering a funding opportunity for a Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit (CESU) partner to conduct research and develop visualization and analysis tools for large spatial datasets within the context of the USGS glacier dashboard. The goal of the glacier dashboard is to provide a single online interactive platform for data availability and usability. The funding opportunity aims to add additional datasets to the glacier dashboard, such as minimum snow-covered area data and time-variable glacier outlines, and enhance the analysis capabilities. The research should focus on creating functionalities to view time-variable data and allow aggregation and averaging of data by management units, such as National Parks or National Forests. The opportunity is open to eligible recipients who are participating partners of the Rocky Mountain CESU Program. Applications must be submitted electronically by 5:00 p.m., ET, on May 29, 2024. For more information, contact FAITH GRAVES at fgraves@usgs.gov.

Description

The US Geological Survey (USGS) is offering a funding opportunity to a CESU partner for research to incorporate additional datasets and to develop visualization and analysis tools for those large spatial datasets within the context of the USGS glacier dashboard. The utility of the rapidly increasing availability of spatially distributed datasets from remote sensing and modelling is primarily limited by the ability to visualize and analyze these data concurrently in context with the other available data. The goal of the glacier dashboard is to democratize data availability and usability through a single online interactive platform. Specifically, the intention of this funding opportunity is to add additional datasets to the glacier dashboard and to increase the analysis capabilities. Additional datasets include, but are not limited to, minimum snow-covered area data from Zeller et al., in press, time-variable glacier outlines from various sources, and proglacial and periglacial lake datasets from Rick et al, 2023. The principal additional analysis capabilities are to create functionalities to view time-variable data, and to create functionalities to allow aggregation and averaging of data by management units (i.e., what is the range and average of any given dataset within a particular National Park, or within a particular National Forest).
