2007 Supplemental PSP

The CALFED Science Program made a small amount of supplemental funds available on a competitive basis to provide an opportunity for some of the 20+ existing Science Program Grantees to enhance their funded research while working on issuing a full PSP for 2008.

The CALFED Science Program considers funding scientific research to be a critical component in achieving its mission of establishing unbiased and authoritative knowledge directly relevant to CALFED actions. The goal of funding this research is to invest in knowledge that will fundamentally advance the understanding of the complex environments/systems within the CALFED jurisdiction to aid policy-makers and managers.
