Workshop Proceedings

Although some Division-sponsored activities like workshops do not result in consensus reports, discussions at workshops and other events are often published in workshop summaries, websites, newsletters, and other formats to preserve and make publicly accessible the information or discussions from the event.

A Century of Wildland Fire Research: Contributions to Long-term Approaches for Wildland Fire Management: Proceedings of a Workshop (2017)

Wildland fire is an important component of many U.S. ecosystems, but managing it has become more difficult because of increasingly dry conditions in some areas of the country, the expansion of the wildland-urban interface, and other sociocultural, regulatory, and economic factors. The costs of suppressing fire and those associated with destruction, displacement, rehabilitation, and loss of life caused by fire continue to rise. The increasin... More >>

Transportation of Laboratory Animals: Proceedings of a Workshop (2017)

Transportation of laboratory animals is a challenge, both domestically and globally. The movement of research animals requires coordination, planning, and the presence of trained personnel to ensure their safe and humane transport. This workshop focused on educating the research community, policy administrators, and the general public on the challenges surrounding this topic, as well as providing interactive journey planning exercises to conve...

The Chemistry of Microbiomes: Proceedings of a Seminar Series (2017)

The 21st century has witnessed a complete revolution in the understanding and description of bacteria in eco- systems and microbial assemblages, and how they are regulated by complex interactions among microbes, hosts, and environments. The human organism is no longer considered a monolithic assembly of tissues, but is instead a true ecosystem composed of human cells, bacteria, fungi, algae, and viruses. As such, humans are not unlike othe... More >>

Low-level Radioactive Waste Management and Disposition: Proceedings of a Workshop (2017)

The Department of Energy's Office of Environmental Management (DOE) is responsible for the safe cleanup of sites used for nuclear weapons development and government-sponsored nuclear energy research. Low-level radioactive waste is the most volumetrically significant waste stream generated by the DOE cleanup program, and it is also generated through commercial activities such as nuclear power plant operations and medical treatments. In the Unite... More >>

Antarctic Sea Ice Variability in the Southern Ocean-Climate System: Proceedings of a Workshop (2017)

The sea ice surrounding Antarctica has increased in extent and concentration from the late 1970s, when satellite-based measurements began, until 2015. Although this increasing trend is modest, it is surprising given the overall warming of the global climate and the region. Indeed, climate models, which incorporate our best understanding of the processes affecting the region, generally simulate a decrease in sea ice. Moreover, sea ice in th... More >>
