Office of Science
The Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER) of the Office of Science (SC), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) hereby announces its interest in receiving research applications for terrestrial ecosystem science. The goal of the Terrestrial Ecosystem Science (TES) program is to improve the representation of terrestrial ecosystem processes in Earth system models thereby improving the quality of climate model projections and providing the scientific foundation needed to inform DOE?s energy decisions. The TES program will consider applications on measurements, experiments, modeling and synthesis that provide improved quantitative and predictive understanding of the terrestrial ecosystem that, in turn, can affect atmospheric greenhouse gas concentration changes and thereby affect the greenhouse gas forcing of climate. In addition, the Earth System Modeling (ESM) Program, which funds development of the Community Earth System Model (CESM) w ill consider applications focused on development and coupling of the CESM land model component. The emphasis of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (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 processes in Earth system models.
