Environmental System Science

Sponsor:           U.S. Department of Energy - Office of Science

Deadlines:         Initial: 9/3/2014          Final: 12/2/2014

Summary:          The Office of Biological and Environmental Research of the Office of Science (SC), U.S. DOE hereby announces its interest in receiving research applications for environmental system science. The goal of this FOA is to improve the representation of terrestrial ecosystems and subsurface processes appropriate for advancing Earth system model capabilities, thereby improving the quality of climate model projections and providing the scientific foundation needed to inform DOEs energy decisions. The FOA will consider applications that focus on measurements, experiments, modeling or synthesis to provide improved quantitative and predictive understanding of terrestrial ecosystems that, in turn, influence atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations and thereby affect the greenhouse gas forcing of climate. The emphasis of this FOA is to understand non-managed terrestrial ecosystems in the context of a changing climate. Applicants should pose their research applications in the context of representing terrestrial ecosystem and/or subsurface processes appropriate for improving the predictability of climate based on Earth system models.

Category:          Environmental Science

Keywords:         environmental systems, terrestrial ecosystems, Earth system model, climate change

Summary:          NSF has established the Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2) program, with the overarching goal of transforming innovations in research and education into sustained software resources that are an integral part of the cyberinfrastructure. SI2 is a long-term investment focused on catalyzing new thinking, paradigms, and practices in developing and using software to understand natural, human, and engineered systems. SI2's intent is to foster a pervasive cyberinfrastructure to help researchers address problems of unprecedented scale, complexity, resolution, and accuracy by integrating computation, data, networking, observations and experiments in novel ways. SI2 envisions vibrant partnerships among academia, government laboratories and industry, including international entities, for the development and stewardship of a sustainable software infrastructure that can enhance productivity and accelerate innovation in science and engineering. The goal of the SI2 program is to create a software ecosystem that includes all levels of the software stack and scales from individual or small groups of software innovators to large hubs of software excellence. The program addresses all aspects of cyberinfrastructure, from embedded sensor systems and instruments, to desktops and high-end data and computing systems, to major instruments and facilities.
