DOE is soliciting applications for research in environmental systems science (ESS), including terrestrial ecosystem science and subsurface biogeochemical research. Using an iterative approach to model-driven experimentation and observation and interdisciplinary teams, ESS-supported scientists work to unravel the coupled physical, chemical, and biological processes that control the structure and functioning of terrestrial ecosystems and integrated watersheds across critical spatial and temporal scales. This opportunity encompasses two topic areas: (1) terrestrial ecology, specifically linking above- and belowground processes, as well as methane biogeochemistry; and 2) subsurface and watershed hydro-biogeochemistry, specifically studying the function and dynamics of hydro-biogeochemical processes within watersheds. All applications are required to clearly delineate an integrative, hypothesis-driven approach and describe the existing needs/gaps in state-of-the-art models. Applicants should provide details on how the results of the proposed research will be used to improve the predictability and sophistication of integrated watershed systems and/or terrestrial ecosystem models. About 12 awards are anticipated out of estimated total program funding of $10M. The closing date for applications is February 20, 2020.
