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 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. All research supported by awards under this FOA
is intended to benefit the public through increasing our understanding of the Earth system.
