This FY23 NOFO is being executed through CPO’s Earth System Science and Modeling (ESSM) Division, and two of its programs: the Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) Program and the Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections (MAPP) Program. Through this announcement, CPO is seeking applications for one individual competition in FY23. This competition solicits 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”.
The competition solicits projects “to improve the understanding and modeling of coupled—ocean, climate, land, hydrologic, hydrodynamic, wave—drivers/contributions to mean and extreme total water levels”, focused on key processes that are most important to the seasonal to annual time scale. Outcomes from these projects will be used for guidance informing the development of future versions of coastal inundation observations and prediction/projection systems on a national level.
The one competition covered by this announcement is as follows:
