Eastern States: Filing of Plat of Survey, 92847-92848 [2016-30583]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 244 / Tuesday, December 20, 2016 / Notices habitat to support viable populations of jaguars. (5) Assess, minimize, and mitigate the effects of expanding human development on jaguar survival and mortality where possible. (6) Minimize direct human-caused mortality of jaguars. (7) Ensure long-term jaguar conservation through adequate funding, public education and outreach, and partnerships. (8) Practice adaptive management in which recovery is monitored and recovery tasks are revised by the USFWS in coordination with the JRT as new information becomes available. The draft recovery plan contains recovery criteria based on stabilizing or improving current populations, protecting habitat, and reducing threats to the species. To achieve recovery criteria, various management actions are needed. When the status of the jaguar meets these criteria, the species will no longer meet the conditions of being endangered throughout a significant portion of its range and will no longer warrant listing. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES Request for Public Comments Section 4(f) of the Act requires us to provide public notice and an opportunity for public review and comment during recovery plan development. It is also our policy to request peer review of recovery plans (July 1, 1994; 59 FR 34270). We will summarize and respond to the issues raised by the public and peer reviewers and post our responses on our Web site. Substantive comments may or may not result in changes to the recovery plan; comments regarding recovery plan implementation will be forwarded as appropriate to Federal or other entities so they can be taken into account during the course of implementing recovery actions. Responses to individual commenters will not be provided, but we will provide a summary of how we addressed substantive comments on our Web site (https://www.fws.gov/ southwest/es/arizona/Jaguar.htm). We invite written comments on the draft recovery plan. In particular, we are interested in additional information regarding the current threats to the species and the costs associated with implementing the recommended recovery actions. Before we approve our final recovery plan, we will consider all comments we receive by the date specified in DATES. Methods of submitting comments are in the ADDRESSES section. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:36 Dec 19, 2016 Jkt 241001 Public Availability of Comments Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Bureau of Reclamation is announcing the following prize competition, Sub-Seasonal Climate Forecast Rodeo. This Challenge seeks to improve on existing sub-seasonal forecasts and asks Solvers (i.e., competitors in the Challenge) to develop systems that perform demonstratively better than existing baseline forecasts for temperature and precipitation over a 15–42-day time frame. Solvers will have approximately 3 months to develop their system, at which point they are asked to provide forecasts every 2 weeks over a 13-month period, with the first month being a ‘‘pre-season’’ to become familiar with the submission and evaluation processes. DATES: Listed below are the specific dates pertaining to this prize competition. Please note that times in meteorology are based upon a worldwide 24-hour clock called Zulu time (Z). Additional detail on Zulu time is available in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of this notice. 1. First forecast due on or before 0Z (Zulu) March 21, 2017 (pre-season), and 0Z April 18, 2017 (actual competition). 2. Final forecast and hind-cast due on or before 0Z April 3, 2018. 3. Final submission due on or before 11:59 p.m. (U.S. Eastern Time) May 3, 2018. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00079 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4. Judging period ends on August 3, 2018. 5. Winners announced on or before September 5, 2018. ADDRESSES: The Sub-Seasonal Climate Forecast Rodeo Prize Competition will be posted on the following crowdsourcing platforms where Solvers can register for this prize competition: 1. The Water Pavilion located at the InnoCentive Challenge Center: www.innocentive.com/water-pavilion/. 2. U.S. Federal Government Challenge Platform: www.Challenge.gov. InnoCentive, Inc. is administering this challenge under a challenge support services contract with the Bureau of Reclamation. Challenge.gov will redirect the Solver community to the InnoCentive Challenge Center as the administrator for this prize competition. Additional details for this prize competition, including background information, templates, and the Challenge Agreement specific for this prize competition, can be accessed through either of these prize competition web addresses. The Challenge Agreement contains more details of the prize competition rules and terms that Solvers must agree with to be eligible to compete. Information pertaining to this competition will be posted to the Bureau of Reclamation’s current prize competitions Web page at www.usbr.gov/research/challenges/ current/. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Challenge Manager: Dr. David Raff, Science Advisor, Bureau of Reclamation, (202) 440–1284, draff@ usbr.gov; Ken Nowak (303) 445–2197, knowak@usbr.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) is announcing the following prize competition in compliance with 15 U.S.C. 3719, Prize Competitions. The intent is to spur innovation toward improved forecasts of temperature and precipitation using a real-time competition and cash prizes as incentives. Prize Competition Summary: Improved sub-seasonal forecasts for weather and climate conditions (leadtimes ranging from 15 to 45 days and beyond) would allow water managers to better prepare for shifts in hydrologic regimes such as the onset of drought or occurrence of wet weather extremes. The challenge with sub-seasonal weather and climate forecasting is that it encompasses the time frame where initial state or condition information, such as coupled land-atmosphere processes becomes less important, and E:\FR\FM\20DEN1.SGM 20DEN1
