Urban Sustainability

Sustainability science was the theme of the 2012 LTER Network Mini-Symposium and the 2012 Network Science Council meeting.  During the Science Council meeting, we convened a group of LTER scientists who have an interest in urban systems research in general and, in particular, in urban sustainability.  We propose to continue those discussions by inviting a larger group with urban interests.  Our work will coordinate closely with the recently funded Urban Sustainability SEES RCN and discussions will focus on:

  1. Advancing one or more RCN Working Group objectives
  2. Beginning a synthetic paper
  3. Coordinating proposal submissions
