This financial assistance opportunity is being issued under a Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit (CESU) Program. CESU’s are partnerships that provide research, technical assistance, and education. Eligible recipients must be participating partners of Pacific Northwest Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit Program.

The US Geological Survey, John Wesley Powell Center for Analysis and Synthesis, is offering a funding opportunity to evaluate how past, current, and future scenarios of global land-use change influence global rates and spatial patterns of biological nitrogen fixation (BNF) rates on Earth This analysis will fill in a gap in knowledge of the global spatial distribution of land-use effects on terrestrial BNF, and how this has changed over time. Work is expected to combine models developed that estimate global spatial BNF patterns using land-use and cover global map products available from 10,000 BCE to 2015 and make projections into the future up to 2100. This work will map how BNF rates and overall N inputs would prevail both in the absence of land use, and their change through time per grid cell as land use has intensified.
