The Air, Water, and Aquatic Environments Science Program (AWAE) has research labs and field unit locations located throughout the interior west. Science teams contributing to the programs' research are based in Albuquerque, NM; Flagstaff, AZ; Fort Collins, CO; Missoula, MT; Moscow, ID; and at AWAE headquarters, located in Boise, ID.
Three experimental forests exist across the geographic range of AWAE. These valuable scientific resources incorporate a broad range of climate conditions, forest and range types, research emphasis, and history. Forest Service, university, and other scientists conduct basic and applied studies on research themes including forest, stream, and rangeland ecology; hydrology; wildlife; biological diversity; and effects of forest and range management. Long-term data on climate, vegetation change, streamflow, and other site factors document environmental change and support research programs.
