The U.S. Department of Energy’s Atmospheric System Research is an observation-based research program created in October 2009 to advance process-level understanding of the key interactions among aerosols, clouds, precipitation, radiation, dynamics, and thermodynamics, with the ultimate goal of reducing the uncertainty in global and regional climate simulations and projections.
GOAMAZON FUNDING ANNOUNCEMENT
A Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is now open for Office of Biological and Environmental Research grants for research in support of the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Green Ocean Amazon (GOAmazon) field campaign. Under this FOA, three DOE programs—ASR, Regional and Global Climate Modeling, and Terrestrial Ecosystem Science—will support research using data collected as part of GOAmazon to evaluate and improve the representation of these coupled processes in the climate models. The FOA is listed as DE-FOA-0000919 on the DOE Office of Science announcements website.
Applications are now being accepted for Office of Biological and Environmental Research research grants from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science for under-represented research within the program. Formal applications for selected preapplications are due May 29, 2013, 11:59 p.m. EDT. For more information, see the funding announcement in ASR News.
