The resources allocated to specific programs within agencies as reflected in these tables for FY98 appropriated funds and the FY99 budget request are estimates only, and are subject to change based on decisions on scientific and programmatic priorities among USGCRP agencies and their advisory bodies and on the input of the national and international scientific communities.
Each agency budget also includes a "Mapping of Budget Request to Appropriations Legislation." The entry for each department or agency points to the location (or locations) in the various Appropriations bills (and, in some cases, Appropriations Committee reports) of funding for USGCRP activities. Note that it is common for global change research to be funded within Appropriations accounts that also include funding for other activities, so that Appropriations bills and committee reports do not necessarily designate funding specifically for global change research. Thus, the actual funding level for global change research activities must be determined, in part, by decisions within agencies about how to allocate appropriated funds. It should also be noted that global change research activities are funded by seven different Appropriations bills, as well as by a varying number of Budget Authorization bills. Thus, the relationship between the USGCRP budget and the Appropriations process is complex and not easily summarized.
