Competition for a Cooperative Institute for the North Atlantic Region: The NOAA Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR) invites applications for the establishment of a North Atlantic Regional Cooperative Institute (CI). The proposed CI will serve a critical function at the juncture of the interdependent global and regional observing systems in the North Atlantic Ocean and those of the Northeast U.S. Shelf Large Marine Ecosystem (NEUS LME). In so doing, the Institute will link basin-scale climate observations to ecosystem-scale monitoring, assessments, and decision making. Broad scale climate observations will also be integrated into to the Global Ocean Observation System. The intent of this CI is to expand and improve our ability to collect, deliver, and use ocean information to study the effect of climate change on various spatial scales including regions, LMEs, and the Nation. Because of NOAA's need for climate information across the North Atlantic; ecosystem and resource information in the NEUS; and information concerning the linkage between the NEUS and the larger North Atlantic, the CI must be able to work across spatial scales (i.e., bays to the North Atlantic basin) and disciplines (i.e., physics, chemistry, biology). The CI must have expertise in linking across natural and humans systems to support NOAA's stewardship and climate-related missions, as well as the ability to work across the scientific enterprise (i.e., research, new technologies, observations, modeling, and decision-support). The goal is for the CI to perform interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary science that focuses on the North Atlantic Ocean, the NEUS LME, and the linkage between them.
