    “These studies will help provide more accurate representation of several particularly complex Earth system processes and thereby improve the E3SM’s overall predictive abilities”, Dr. Chris Fall, Director of the DOE’s Office of Science, explained. The research will focus on a range of different topics, from improved representation of ecological systems and cloud-aerosol interactions in predictive models to quantifying uncertainties across a range of processes, scales, time horizons, and regional impacts.

    Projects were chosen by competitive peer review under the DOE Funding Opportunity Announcement, under the Earth and Environmental Systems Modeling Program, sponsored by the Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER), within the Department’s Office of Science.

    Funding totals $7 million in Fiscal Year 2020 dollars for projects lasting three years in duration.
