Through planning grants, the NSF Directorate for Engineering is exploring "Concept Development" of a new cyberinfrastructure project.  This  new research focus centers on a network of "Environmental Field Facilities", which would constitute a "Collaborative Large-scale Engineering Analysis Network (EAN) for Environmental Research (CLEANER)". The goal of CLEANER  is to advance knowledge and integrated assessment modeling of complex environmental systems, thereby enabling more effective approaches to adaptive management. CLEANER will provide the capability for near-real time dynamic monitoring and analysis of key parameters for effective environmental management.  (See  http://cleaner.ce.berkeley.edu)
