On 25 January 2013, BES will hold a half day session on the conceptual structure of phase III of the project. This meeting will run from 8:30 till noon, starting with a light breakfast. This meeting will be held at the USGS Conference Room at 5522 Research Park Drive, on the edge of the UMBC campus in Baltimore County.
The goal of the meeting is to allow our academic and professional community to better integrate our project, to be able to articulate how our various individual projects contribute to the overall goals, and to lay out a strategy to prepare for the external mid-term review to be held in October 2013.
The meeting will review our new guiding question, discuss and link the more specific research questions to that overarching question, and explore how better to use our three theoretical umbrellas for integration. In addition, how our modeling efforts are being used to promote the hierarchy of research questions and unify the three theoretical areas, will be discussed.
All members of the BES community are invited to participate in this meeting. It will follow our full day session on education, to be held on Thursday 24 January.
