Climate and Global Change: a new program within the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration representing the core of NOAA's
contribution to the Global Change Research Program. About $3.8 million will be
available in fiscal year 1990 for extramural research. Proposals due by May
1. For complete announcement contact Eileen Shea, NOAA, 6010 Executive
Blvd., Rm. 825, Rockville MD 20852 (301-443-8415).
An interdisciplinary Center for Global Change Science is being
established at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, building on MIT's
existing programs in hydrology, meteorology and oceanography. Applications for
faculty positions in these areas are solicited. (See Eos, p. 9, Jan. 2,
A Special Program on the Science of Global Climate Change was
created by the Science Committee of NATO last year. Activities, such as Advanced
Research Workshops and Advanced Study Institutes that encourage
interdisciplinary collaboration among geologists, climatologists, chemists,
ecologists and biogeochemists, are expected to start in 1990. Contact the NATO
Scientific Affairs Div., B-1110 Brussels, Belgium.
The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) has launched a
Climate Systems Modeling Program, a ten-year, multidisciplinary study of
global climate change. The broad program will involve pure scientists in
different fields, social scientists, the National Center for Atmospheric
Research (NCAR), universities, industry and government. Contact the UCAR office
at NCAR, POB 3000, Boulder CO 80307.
