Social Science Weather Research: This research funding opportunity is being jointly issued by the U.S. Weather Research Program in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Office and Weather and Air Quality (OWAQ) in NOAA Research and the National Weather Service (NWS). It seeks to stimulate research and develop collaborations between social and physical scientists that can help build a Weather Ready Nation. (See for more information about NOAA's Weather Ready Nation activities.) This research will help to better understand human behavior and positively affect decision-making during weather-related events and the formulation and communication of forecast uncertainty, or forecast confidence. The results of this research are expected to improve the communication within the weather community and to the public to invoke a response that will help protect life and property during dangerous weather events.
