Funding Opportunity Announced
Atmospheric System Research
U.S. Department of Energy

Preapplication deadline: 5:00 p.m. EDT on 15 April 2013

The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science is now accepting
applications for Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER)
grants for under-represented research within the program. Priority will
be given to observational, data analysis, and/or modeling studies that
use data from the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) or Atmospheric
System Research (ASR) programs to:

- Address current scientific uncertainties in the properties of
boundary layer and mixed phase clouds, ice nucleation processes, and
aerosol processes;
- Make use of new ARM field campaign data to address ASR science
goals; or
- Develop new integrated datasets or new algorithms from ARM
observations that can be used to address ASR science questions.

Successful applications will be part of the Atmospheric System Research
(ASR) Program in the Climate and Environmental Sciences Division (CESD).
The mission of ASR is to improve the treatment of clouds, precipitation,
aerosols, and radiative transfer processes in atmospheric models, that
in turn are combined with ocean, terrestrial, and ice sheet models to
make projections of climate change.

Potential applicants are required to submit a brief preapplication,
referencing DE-FOA-0000885. Preapplications may not exceed two pages and
should provide a clear and concise description of the objectives and
technical approach of the proposed research. More details on the
required preapplication information are given in the funding
announcement. Applicants for collaborative projects should submit a
single preapplication identifying all project participants.

Preapplications are required and must be submitted through the DOE
Office of Science Portfolio Analysis and Management System by 5:00 p.m.
EDT on 15 April 2013. Only those preapplicants that receive notification
from DOE encouraging a formal application may submit full applications,
which will be due 29 May 2013 at 11:59 p.m. EDT.
