Other Organizations & Partners to CSAS
First and foremost, the US Department of Agriculture’s Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forest (GMUG) is CSAS’s indispensable partner, responsible for granting and administering the CSAS's Special Use Permit for our Senator Beck Basin Study Area at Red Mountain Pass. CSAS and the GMUG Forest have a collaborative and synergistic relationship linking science at Senator Beck Basin with public lands management.
In pursuit of our Mission, CSAS has also established and is building substantive relationships with scientists at American academic institutions and at independent mountain research and education organizations and field stations, international research organizations and universities, and with numerous state and federal resource management agencies including the U.S. Geologic Survey, NOAA and the National Weather Service, NASA, and numerous local, state, and federal water management agencies.
Finally, we gratefully list the National Science Foundation among our singularly important partners. In particular, the Atmospheric Sciences and Earth Sciences programs of the Directorate for Geosciences, and the Geography and Regional Science program of the Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences have all invested their helpful critical thinking and cherished funding in the CSAS's growing research program.
