PI-Submitted Research Highlights for
Terrestrial Ecosystem Science Program

DOE TES Researchers:
Submit Your Research Highlight!

Tell us about your research! This system is designed to collect brief science highlights describing published research supported by the Terrestrial Ecosystem Science (TES) program within DOE’s Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER). For each highlight, you will be asked to submit a research summary, a PDF of the publication, and a PDF of the BER highlight slide (slide examples).

Once submitted, these science highlights are (1) used by the TES program management team as part of regular efforts to inform senior BER and DOE Office of Science management of the importance and impact of TES-supported research; (2) posted on the TES website to inform other TES-supported researchers of important recently published work; (3) submitted to BER’s science highlights archive; (4) considered for use in TES, Climate and Environmental Sciences Division, and BER outreach and communication materials; and (5) used for other scientific outreach and communication purposes [e.g., posted on the Office of Science highlights website].
