Proposal to NOAA OGP: CDEP and RISA programs, April 1, 2005-March 31, 2010

Center for Science in the Earth System 2004. Proposal to NOAA OGP: CDEP and RISA programs, April 1, 2005-March 31, 2010. Proposal to the NOAA Office of Global Programs for 2005-2010. Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean, University of Washington, Seattle, WA.


This is a five year proposal from the Center for Science in the Earth System (CSES) to the NOAA Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessment (RISA) and Climate Dynamics/Experimental Prediction (CDEP) programs. The purpose of CSES is to research (by analysis and by doing) the use of climate information for the benefit of the people of the PNW and the nation. The Center does this through a program of applied research, case studies, development, outreach and education. It is a unique center in its end-to-end orientation, having climate dynamics, climate impacts, and climate applications aspects, and draws on the resources of major universities in the region to complement its own activities. It is composed of leaders in the fields of climate dynamics and diagnostics, hydrology, forestry, water resources, economics, marine ecology, and institutional and policy analysis, all working together toward the common goal of enhancing regional and national resilience to climate variability and change.
