FUNDING OPPORTUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT (FOA) NUMBER: DE-FOA-0002198
"SUMMARY 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 Climate and Environmental Sciences Division (CESD). 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 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."
