Résumé
The research proposed for W4190 is often undertaken in response to stakeholder requests for information and analysis. Not by coincidence, it also addresses national and regional priorities for water management. The USGS Committee on Water Science and Research recently commissioned a study from the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) to identify the highest priority water resource and science challenges for the U.S. over the n ext 25 years. The NAS report, compiled based in part on input from USGS stakeholders (federal, state, tribal, and local agencies, private companies, and individuals) identifies ten research questions, five of which relate directly to the research proposed for W4190 below : 1) How do human activities affect water quantity and quality ; 2) How does changing climate affect water quality, quantity, and reliability, as well as water-related hazards and extreme events ; 3) How can long-term water-related risk management be improved ; 4) How do institutions and governance and institutional resilience impact the quantity and quality of water ; and 5) How can competing uses for water resources be managed and maintained to sustain healthy communities and ecosystems in a changing world. These research questions are at the heart of the W4190 proposal.
