Description: The NOAA Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR) invites applications for the establishment of a Cooperative Institute (CI) for Atmospheric and Marine Studies. The proposed CI will serve a critical function of coordinating the deployment of instruments and collection and quality control of data for major elements of the interdependent global and regional observing systems in the Southeast Region, creating an integrated, end-to-end system. The CI will expand and improve our ability to collect, check, distribute, and use climate, weather, water, ocean, coastal marine, fishery, and habitat information to study the effects of climate variability and change, severe weather, water, and resource management on spatial scales from local to global. The regional CI (that will include expertise from sub-regions in the Gulf of Mexico, Southeastern U.S., Caribbean, and Atlantic) will collaborate with NOAA scientists to contribute to this understanding through a variety of activities. In addition to the blended needs of climate, weather, water, ocean, coastal, and ecosystem-based management, the CI will provide an opportunity to grow and train the next generation of a diverse pool of scientists by giving many students and postdoctoral scientists a ‘hands-on’ opportunity to participate in NOAA research.
