ABOUT THE HANDBOOK
The handbook addresses the challenges of producing usable science--science that meets the changing needs of the decision makers.  Drawing from the findings of our five-year NSF supported research project, it offers useful approaches to thinking about the funding and management of science designed to support decision making.
