DOE Atmospheric System Research (ASR)
Pre-Application (required) deadline November 3, 2021 at 5:00 PM Eastern Time
The DOE SC program in Biological and Environmental Research (BER) hereby announces its interest in receiving applications for Atmospheric System Research (ASR) within BER’s Earth and Environmental Systems Sciences Division (EESSD). 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. This 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; 2) Aerosol processes affecting cloud lifecycle, properties, and/or processes; 3) Convective cloud processes; and 4) High-latitude atmospheric processes. All research supported by awards under this FOA is intended to benefit the public through increasing our understanding of the Earth system.
