Atmospheric System Research (ASR) DE-FOA-0003194

Sponsor: DOE
Internal Deadline: 10/20/2023
Institutional Submission Limit: 3
Sponsor Deadline: 11/30/2023
Program Website

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 processes at ARM sites; 2) Convective cloud processes; 3) Aerosol and cloud processes from ARM’s Eastern Pacific Cloud Aerosol Precipitation Experiment (EPCAPE); and 4) Mixed-phase cloud and ice cloud processes.

Pre-applications are required and should contain a concise description of the objectives and technical approach of the proposed research that makes clear how the proposed research responds to the research topics of the FOA.

Submission Process

Limited submissions MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research.

If interested in applying for this opportunity, email a two-page project abstract, include at top the project title, PI, and list of key collaborators, as well as a 2-3 page CV/biosketch for the PI (SCiENcv preferred) by the INTERNAL DEADLINE above to Julie Morris at
