RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES


Item #d90sep106

U.S. Dept. of Energy. Two new major research initiatives of the U.S. DOE relate to developing data and models of processes by which changes in the Earth's radiative balance may change climate. The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program will establish instrument networks for evaluating parameterizations of cloud and radiative effects in atmospheric models. The program plan was listed in Global Climate Change Digest, REPORTS/DOE DOCUMENTS, May 1990. For information contact Gerald Stokes, Pacific Northwest Lab., POB 999, Richland WA 99352 (509-375-3816).

The Computer Hardware, Advanced Mathematics, and Model Physics (CHAMMP) initiative will develop over the next ten years an advanced climate model intended to eventually carry out detailed climate calculations at least 104 times faster than is now done on the CRAY-2 computer. For information contact Michael MacCracken, Lawrence Livermore Nat. Lab., POB 808 (L-262), Livermore CA 94550 (415-422-1826).


Item #d90sep107

U.K. Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. Proposals are solicited on 1- to 3-year projects to begin in 1991-92.

Due date Oct. 15, 1990. Contact Bill Woodbridge, MAFF, Rm. G15, Nobel House, 17 Smith Sq., London SW1P 3JR (tel: 071-238 5512). (See New Sci., p. 83, July 28.)
