FY 2015 Joint Hurricane Testbed

Funding organization: Office of Oceanic & Atmospheric Research (OAR)
Application deadline: 12/5/2014
Description:
The Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), is soliciting LOIs under the United States Weather Research Program (USWRP), as administrated by the USWRP Joint Hurricane Testbed (JHT). This notice also provides guidelines for the submission of full proposals. This notice describes opportunities and application procedures for the transfer of relevant research and technology advances into tropical cyclone analysis and forecast operations. Eligible applicants are institutions of higher education; other nonprofits; commercial organizations; foreign governments; organizations under the jurisdiction of foreign governments; international organizations; state, local and Indian tribal governments; and Federal agencies. This notice calls for researchers to submit proposals to test and evaluate, and modify if necessary, in a (quasi-operational) experimental environment, their own scientific and technological research applications. The experimental test environment includes capabilities for real-time demonstration testing based on links to operational observational and model data streams. Projects satisfying metrics for success and operational constraints may be selected for operational implementation by the operational center(s) after the completion of the USWRP-funded work. The period of the award is from one to two years.

The purpose of the expanded sub-category is to support social science research across a broad range of subject areas and disciplines, using quantitative and qualitative methodologies. While social science methods are formally requested within this topic, they are also welcome in response to other applicable research topics. Also included within the “Human Dimensions” sub-category are topics that have appeared in past RFPs related to 1) human interactions with marine systems, and 2) the collection, synthesis and application of local and traditional knowledge (LTK).

2015 NOAA Fisheries/Sea Grant Fellowships in Marine Resource Economics

Funding organization: Department of Commerce
Application deadline: 1/29/2015
Description:
The Fellowship Program generally awards two new PhD Fellowships each year to students who are interested in careers related to the development and implementation of quantitative methods for assessing the economics of the conservation and management of living marine resources. Fellows will work on thesis problems of public interest and relevance to NMFS under the guidance of NMFS mentors at participating NMFS Science Centers or Offices. The NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship in Marine Resource Economics meets NOAA's Healthy Oceans goal of "Marine fisheries, habitats, biodiversity sustained with healthy and productive ecosystems". The expected annual award per Fellow will be $43,500 (federal plus matching funds), of which half ($21,750) is expected to be provided by NOAA Fisheries, and the other half is expected to be provided by Sea Grant federal funds and required associated matching funds.
