New ASR Funding Opportunity Announcement for 2020

Published: 21 November 2019

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science program in Biological and Environmental Research (BER) is now accepting research grant applications for Atmospheric System Research (ASR). This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) solicits research grant applications for observational, data analysis, and/or modeling studies that use observations supported by BER, including the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility, to improve understanding and model representation of 1) aerosol-cloud interactions and 2) high-latitude atmospheric processes; 3) to support aerosol and cloud research associated with ARM’s Tracking Aerosol Convection interactions Experiment (TRACER); and/or 4) to develop new proof-of-concept data products from ARM site instruments.

ASR supports research on key cloud, aerosol, precipitation, and radiative transfer processes that affect the Earth’s radiative balance and hydrological cycle, especially processes that limit the predictive ability of regional and global models. Details are available in the funding opportunity announcement DE-FOA-0002198 on the BER funding opportunities page and

Pre-applications are required and must be submitted through the DOE Office of Science Portfolio Analysis and Management System by 5 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, January 21, 2020.

For full submission requirements, see the FOA (pdf).

Please send all inquiries regarding these announcements directly to ASR Program Manager Shaima Nasiri.
