The Department of Energy is looking to award grants worth up to $14 million for scientific research of the interaction between aerosols and clouds.
DOE said Monday it plans to hold a competition for the funding opportunity for the Atmospheric System Research program and select awardees through a peer-review process.
Each grant will range from $200,000 to $900,000 and support three years of work that could begin in the government's 2022 fiscal year. The department expects fund recipients to use data from its Atmospheric Radiation Measurement laboratory and other agency-backed observations.
DOE added that the competitive grant program will be open to interested parties in the commercial, academic, nonprofit and federal sectors.
