Announcement of opportunity
Proposals are invited for submission to the RAPID-AMOC research programme, which builds upon the previous RAPID-WATCH and RAPID programmes and which will extend the delivery of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) time series until 2020.
This call is for standard type proposals to address three novel uses for the observational data arising from the 26·5°N RAPID array:
- Novel approaches to ocean state estimation using 26·5°N data.
- The role of the AMOC in climate variability and predictability.
- Biogeochemical fluxes.
Proposals for this call are invited from eligible UK researchers (see the NERC Research Grants Handbook for standard eligibility criteria).
The closing date for proposals is 16:00 on 20 February 2014.
Please see the Announcement of Opportunity document below for full details of the call.
