NOAA Competition for a Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere
The NOAA Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR) invites applications for the establishment of a Cooperative Institute (CI) for Research in the Atmosphere. This new cooperative institute supports the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research’s Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL) and Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML), National Weather Service (NWS), and the NOAA National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service (NESDIS) Regional and Mesoscale Meteorology (RAMM) Branch in helping NOAA meet its mission responsibilities.
NOAA Competition for a Cooperative Institute for the North Atlantic Region
NOAA invites applications for the establishment of a North Atlantic Regional Cooperative Institute (CI). The proposed CI will serve a critical function at the juncture of the interdependent global and regional observing systems in the North Atlantic Ocean and those of the Northeast U.S. Shelf Large Marine Ecosystem (NEUS LME). In so doing, the Institute will link basin-scale climate observations to ecosystem-scale monitoring, assessments, and decision making. Broad scale climate observations will also be integrated into to the Global Ocean Observation System. The intent of this CI is to expand and improve our ability to collect, deliver, and use ocean information to study the effect of climate change on various spatial scales including regions, LMEs, and the Nation.
