NationalCouncilforScienceandtheEnvironment TheNationalCouncilforScienceandtheEnvironment(NCSE)isanot-for-profit organization that improves the scientific basis for environmental decision-making. NCSEspecializesinbringingtogether diverseinstitutionsandindividualstoadvance environmental science, education, and their applications in five strategic areas: • StrengtheningEducationandCareers; • CommunicatingSciencetothePublicthroughtheonlineEncyclopediaofEarth; • OrganizingtheNationalConferenceonScience,PolicyandtheEnvironment; • DevelopingScienceSolutionstoSpecificEnvironmentalChallenges;and • PromotingScience-DrivenPolicyfortheEnvironment. UniversityAffiliateProgram and Community College Affiliate Program NCSE’s University Affiliate Program works in collaboration with over180 member institutions to strengthen academicenvironmentalprogramsacrosstheUnitedStates.Membershipbenefitsandservicesinclude: • Conferencesand meetingstoaddress all issuesrelatedtoenvironmental programs, theirfacultyand students; • Analysis andreportson environmental, sustainabilityand energyprogramsoncampusesnationwide; • Annual report and conference funding forenvironmental research and education; • ComplimentaryparticipationintheNationalConference onScience,PolicyandtheEnvironment; • Free campus-wide environmental andenergynewsservices; • Participation in multi-institutional collaborations to secure federal funding; • Internship opportunities through NCSE’s online environmental internship clearinghouse; • Sabbatical opportunities; and • Peer communication and collaboration on allenvironmental issuesof interest to members. Council of Environmental Deans and Directors The Council of Environmental Deans and Directors (CEDD) brings together environmental leaders at NCSE member institutions to improve the quality, stature and effectiveness of interdisciplinary environmental programs. CEDD supports curriculum advancement, interdisciplinary scholarship, leadership development, and improved program management through projects including: • Agriculture & Environment • Campus to Careers Study • ClimateSolutionsCurricula • CurriculumStudy • Energy Education • Environment & Human Health • InterdisciplinaryTenure • Public Policy Cover photos: Center photo courtesy of the U.S. Department of Energy; Other photos courtesy of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

FederalFundingforEnvironmentalResearchandDevelopment2013 4 T T Acknowledgements he National Council for Science and Environment (NCSE) is pleased to acknowledge and express its deep appreciation to the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The AAAS R&D Budget and Policy Program has provided the budget analysis behind this report for the past thirteen years, first under Kei Koizumi and, in recent years, under Patrick Clemins and Matthew Hourihan, with significant help from Kelly Anderson. This report is made possible by members of the NCSE University Affiliate Program and the Community College Affiliate Program listed in Appendix C and Appendix D Statement Regarding Data Sources (applies to all Tables and Charts) All date is drawn from OMB R&D data, Budget of the United States Government, agency budget justification, agency budget documents, and historical data. Yearly values are adjusted for inflation using OMB's GDP deflators. Nominal values are unadjusted. FY 2013 are estimates adjusted for the full-year continuing resolution and sequestration. Foreword his Handbook provides an overview of the entire federal environmental R&D portfolio fol- lowed by chapters about individual federal agencies. The budget analysis for this Handbook has been conducted in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) over the course of thirteen years, in order to maintain consistency with AAAS publications on R&D in the federal budget. Budget definitions and assumptions relevant to the analysis of environmental R&D in the federal budget are discussed in Appendix A. This report defines environmental sciences as the systematic study directed toward fuller scientific knowledge or understanding of the various biological and physical components of the earth’s environment and the interactions between the earth’s environment and humanity. The following areas are included in the definition of environmental R&D: • Environmental physical sciences such as atmospheric sciences, geological sciences, oceanography, and other non-biological terrestrial sciences. • Environmental life sciences such as environmental biology, forestry, marine biology, and related fields. • Environmental engineering and other sciences, including R&D related to prevention, control, regulation, and clean-up.
  • 5. FederalFundingforEnvironmentalResearchandDevelopment2013 5 • Energy conservation and alternative energy research. • Environmental social sciences such as environmental economics and other fields that study human social and cultural activities related to environmental conditions. • Environmental data and information sciences related to the environment, such as collection, storage, standardization, and management R&D. • Studies that utilize any or all of the above to address pollution problems or activities that impair the sustained functioning and productivity of the earth’s environment. The following areas are not included in the definition of environmental research: • Most human health R&D such as the much of the work carried out by the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences and some other federal agencies. However, human health R&D focused on specific environmental problems such as the Superfund program are included. • Extraterrestrial environmental sciences such as studies of other planets. • Studies that focus primarily on resource extraction and utilizing environmental resources as distinct from how those practices impact the environment (which are included). Thus mining and fishing technology, studies of agricultural crops, livestock and their use are not generally included except where the focus is on environmental impact (e.g., studies of turtle excluder devices and the impact of agricultural practices on the environment are included.) We have made no effort to analyze activities by specific “fields of science” or “scientific disciplines” except when an agency organizes its activities along those lines. To produce the narrative of this report, NCSE has drawn extensively from the budget documents, web sites, and other resources of the agencies of the federal government. We have attempted to represent the work of the agencies in a balanced and objective way. The amount of text devoted to various agencies and programs reflects approximately the level of expenditures invested in environmental research and development by those agencies and programs. Given that a typical page in this report covers approximately $100 million of in environmental research and development, the level of detail we are able to provide is limited. We encourage readers to explore the web sites and documents of the respective agencies and programs for additional details. Where possible Fiscal Year 2012 budget for continuing budgets is provided, or proposed budgets for FY 2014 for new programs. Note these are the entire budgets of the program of usually include more than just R&D. Because terms such as “environmental science” and even “research” and “development” have imprecise definitions, estimates of federal funding for environmental R&D must be considered approximations. That is not to say the data and descriptions of particular programs are not accurate, rather that definitions are important in deciding which programs and projects to include in the analysis. A broader definition of “environmental science” that included topics related to human health might add several billion dollars to the overall funding level. A narrower definition that omitted areas related to energy might reduce overall funding by over a billion dollars. We have attempted to maintain consistency over time in order to identify trends and changes in funding for environmental R&D. The budget of the federal government and the activities of its agencies are subject to change — sometimes significant change at short notice. We again encourage readers to explore the web sites and documents of the respective agencies and programs for the latest information.
