SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On October 4, 2012, the U.S. Department of

the Interior (DOI) published a notice announcing the establishment of

the Advisory Committee on Climate Change and Natural Resource Science

(Committee), and inviting nominations for membership on the committee.

The Committee will provide advice on matters and actions relating to

the establishment and operations of the U.S. Geological Survey National

Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center and the DOI Climate Science

Centers. In doing so, the Committee will obtain input from Federal,

state, tribal, local government, nongovernmental organizations, private

sector entities, and academic institutions.

The Department has determined that additional time is required to

enable members to be nominated for the committee.

We are seeking nominations for individuals to be considered as

Committee members. Nominations should include a resume that describes

the nominee's qualifications in enough detail to enable us to make an

informed decision regarding meeting the membership requirements of the

Committee and to contact a potential member.

Members of the Committee will be composed of approximately 25

members from both the Federal Government, and the following interests:

(1) State and local governments, including state membership entities;

(2) Non-governmental organizations, including those whose primary

mission is professional and scientific and those whose primary mission

is conservation and related scientific and advocacy activities; (3)

American Indian tribes and other Native American entities; (4)

Academia; (5) Individual landowners; and (6) Business interests.

In addition, the Committee may include scientific experts, and will

include rotating representation from one or more of the institutions

that host the DOI Climate Science Centers.

The Committee will meet approximately 2-4 times annually, and at

such times as designated by the DFO. The Secretary of the Interior will

appoint members to the Committee. Members appointed as special

Government employees are required to file on an annual basis a

confidential financial disclosure report.

No individual who is currently registered as a Federal lobbyist is

eligible to serve as a member of the Committee.
