Climate and Large-Scale Dynamics
To advance knowledge about the processes that force and regulate the atmosphere's synoptic and planetary circulation, weather and climate, and sustain the pool of human resources required for excellence in synoptic and global atmospheric dynamics and climate research. Research topics include theoretical, observational and modeling studies of the general circulation of the stratosphere and troposphere; synoptic scale weather phenomena; processes that govern climate; the causes of climate variability and change; methods to predict climate variations; extended weather and climate predictability; development and testing of parameterization of physical processes; numerical methods for use in large-scale weather and climate models; the assembly and analysis of instrumental and/or modeled weather and climate data; data assimilation studies; development and use of climate models to diagnose and simulate climate and its variations and change.
DEADLINE: Full Proposal Accepted Anytime
Proposals may be submitted at any time during the year for all programs except those involving the allocation of observational and computing facilities.
