The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is seeking experts for a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Science Advisory Board (SAB) panel that will review the EPA’s draft science synthesis report, Connectivity of Streams and Wetlands to Downstream Waters: A Review and Synthesis of the Scientific Evidence. Nominations of recognized experts in one or more of the following disciplines are requested:
- Hydrology, geology and fluvial geomorphology, with expertise in the hydrology and formation of large rivers, small streams, wetlands, surface-groundwater interactions, sediment transport, or hydrologic connectivity of waters.
- Ecology, with expertise in stream or wetland ecology, particularly with respect to freshwater stream-wetland connectivity or wetland ecosystem function.
- Biology, with expertise in population dynamics and dispersal of freshwater organisms, fisheries, aquatic entomology, amphibian biology, or biological connectivity of freshwater ecosystems.
- Water chemistry and biogeochemistry, with expertise in nutrient dynamics or pollutant fate and transport.
Nominations are due by 29 March 2013. More information is available at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-03-08/html/2013-05500.htm.
