Opportunity: Research in Integrated Assessment Inter-Model Deve


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 grant applications for Research in Integrated Assessment Inter-Model Development, Testing, and Diagnostics under the Integrated Assessment Research Program (IARP). The IARP, located within the Climate and Environmental Sciences Division (CESD) of BER, supports the DOE mission and the U.S. Global Change Research Program¿s interests to improve fundamental understanding of the interactions between human and natural systems in climate change, including the central role and implications for energy systems, and to develop the integrated, science-based models and tools that inform national and regional decision-making on options for mitigation and adaptation. In the broadest sense, IARP is concerned with modeling in collective frameworks, the end-to-end processes of climate change and the complex, non-linear interactions among major human and natural systems. To strengthen the scientific foundations upon which Integrated Assessment models are built, DOE is requesting applications for a single, coordinated research effort that will: 1) advance progress on a select set of major scientific challenges in the field of Integrated Assessment that are widely recognized and confronting the major Integrated Assessment modeling teams, 2) advance methods and capabilities for inter-model testing and diagnostics, and 3) enhance capabilities for multi-model, ¿ensemble-like¿ analyses for improved insights in science studies and science-based analyses.
