Climate variability and change present society with significant economic, health, safety, and security challenges. As part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) climate portfolio within the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR), Climate Program Office (CPO), the Earth System Science and Modeling (ESSM) Division programs address climate challenges by managing competitive research programs that support high-priority science initiatives. CPO/ESSM Programs advance our understanding of the Earth’s climate system and foster the application and use of this knowledge to improve the resilience of our Nation and its partners. The National Ocean Service (NOS) provides data, tools, and services that support coastal economies and their contribution to the national economy, especially in the area of preparedness and risk reduction. The Climate Program Office is working across OAR and NOS, and in collaboration with the National Weather Service, to develop and support research on the topic of coastal inundation.

Through this announcement, CPO/ESSM is seeking applications for one individual competition in FY23. Competitions solicit projects in response to H.R.3684 - Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, NOAA section, Provision 3:“... coastal and inland flood and inundation mapping and forecasting, …” that align with the goals of “A NOAA Capability for Coastal Flooding and Inundation Information and Services at Climate Timescales to Reduce Risk and Improve Resilience”.
