2023 FARE Users' Workshop
NCAR/EOL and the University of Wyoming are hosting the NSF-funded Facilities for Atmospheric Research and Education (FARE) Workshop from 18-22 September 2023 in Boulder, Colorado. The main goals of the workshop are to increase community awareness of the expanded FARE program, to provide guidance to researchers who plan to submit proposals requiring NSF observational assets, and to facilitate discussions related to science drivers, emerging technologies, and community needs. In bringing together new and experienced users of NSF observing facilities, this workshop will offer an excellent opportunity to network, collaborate, and explore observational needs to advance atmospheric science. The workshop will be conducted in hybrid mode to allow for virtual participation.
NSF Facility and Instrumentation Request Process (FIRP)
A revised version of the Facility and Instrumentation Request Process (FIRP) solicitation was published by NSF on 3 July 2023. The solicitation describes the mechanism by which the research community can propose projects that require access to facilities and instrumentation sponsored by the Facilities for Atmospheric Research and Education (FARE) Program in the Division of Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences (AGS). Specialized FARE instrumentation and facilities include the Lower Atmosphere Observing Facilities (LAOF) and the Community Instruments and Facilities (CIF). For more information, please contact Dr. Shree Mishra, NSF FARE Program Director (firstname.lastname@example.org).
