DOE FOA — Environmental System Science

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Science, Biological and Environmental Research (BER) announces its interest in receiving applications for research in Environmental System Science (ESS).  The goal of the ESS program in BER is to advance an integrated, robust, and scale-aware predictive understanding of terrestrial systems and their interdependent microbial, biogeochemical, ecological, hydrological, and physical processes.

This FOA encompasses three Science Research Areas: 1) improved understanding of hot spots and hot moments of biogeochemical cycling in terrestrial-aquatic interfaces; 2) investigations of cold-region ecosystem and watershed process responses to changing cold-season climate drivers; and 3) synthesis studies using existing data that address testing of ESS-relevant hypotheses and development of transferable insights across ecosystems, watersheds, and regions
