The Western Tri-state Consortium has been awarded a new NSF Track 2 Cyberinfrastructure Improvement Grant. The EPSCoR states of New Mexico, Idaho and Nevada form the EPSCoR Western Tri-State Consortium. Program Directors, scientists and educators from the three states met in New Mexico, November, 2008 and Idaho, December, 2009, to create a coordinated cyberinfrastructure research and development plan that serves both as a platform for future climate change research collaborations and the foundation for the recently submitted tri-state EPSCoR Track 2 Cyberinfrastructure proposal. The figure above summarizes the Consortium’s state-specific EPSCoR RII cyberinfrastructure and human capacity investments, long term Consortium-based research goals, and Track 1 climate change research foci.
