Climate and Societal Interactions - 0 views

  •  
    The mission of the NOAA Climate and Societal Interactions (CSI) research portfolio is to inform improvements in planning and preparedness in diverse socio-economic regions and sectors throughout the U.S. and abroad via the integration of knowledge and information about extreme weather and climate. Our research advances the nation's understanding of climate-related risks and vulnerabilities across sectors and regions - within and beyond our borders - and the development of tools to foster more informed decision making. These efforts support NOAA's vision to create and sustain enhanced resilience in ecosystems, communities, and economies. The overall objectives of the CSI portfolio are the following: 1. Support innovative, applicable, and transferable approaches for decision making, especially for risk characterization in the context of a variable and changing climate; 2. Establishment of a network of regionally scoped, long-term efforts to inform climate risk management and decision making; and 3. Promotion of the transfer of climate knowledge, tools, products, and services within NOAA, across the federal government, nationally, and internationally.

Paleo Perspectives on Climate Change (P2C2) (nsf17582) | NSF - National Science Foundation - 0 views

  •  
    The goal of research funded under the interdisciplinary P2C2 solicitation is to utilize key geological, chemical, atmospheric (gas in ice cores), and biological records of climate system variability to provide insights into the mechanisms and rate of change that characterized Earth's past climate variability, the sensitivity of Earth's climate system to changes in forcing, and the response of key components of the Earth system to these changes.

Climate Program Office 2018 - 0 views

  •  
    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is focused on providing the essential and highest quality environmental information vital to our Nation's safety, prosperity and resilience. Toward this goal, the agency conducts and supports weather and climate research, oceanic and atmospheric observations, modeling, information management, assessments, interdisciplinary decision-support research, outreach, education, and partnership development. Climate variability and change present society with significant economic, health, safety, and security challenges and opportunities. In meeting these challenges, and as part of NOAA's climate portfolio within the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR), the Climate Program Office (CPO) advances scientific understanding, monitoring, and prediction of climate and its impacts, to enable effective decisions. Within this context, CPO manages competitive research programs through which NOAA funds high-priority climate science, assessments, decision support research, outreach, education, and capacity-building activities designed to advance our understanding of the Earth's climate system, and to foster the application and use of this knowledge to improve the resilience of our Nation and its partners. CPO supports research that is conducted across the United States and internationally. CPO's climate research portfolio is designed to achieve a fully integrated research and applications program. We meet this objective through a focus on climate intelligence and climate resilience, in support of NOAA's goals.

World Community Grid Accepting Applications for Climate-Related Projects | RFPs | PND - 0 views

  •  
    World Community Grid, an IBM initiative, enables anyone with a computer, smartphone, or tablet to donate their unused computing power to advance cutting-edge scientific research on topics related to health, poverty, and sustainability. Through the contributions of more than 650,000 individuals and 460 organizations, WCG has supported twenty-eight research projects to date, including searches for more effective treatments for cancer, HIV/AIDS, and neglected tropical diseases. Other projects include identifying low-cost water filtration systems and new materials for capturing solar energy efficiently.

Submit a Climate Change or Environmental Proposal - 0 views

  •  
    Projects must be designed to advance understanding of the impacts of or mitigating strategies for climate change. This may include but is not limited to understanding the impacts of climate change on water resources and natural resource preservation, tracking and predicting (human or animal) migration patterns based on changing weather conditions, developing models to analyze and improve crop or livestock resilience and yields in regions with extreme weather conditions, and more.
