Board on Atmospheric Sciences and Climate Strategic Guidance for NSFs Support of Research in the Atmospheric Sciences Charge the committee is asked to consider how ATM can best accomplish its mission of supporting the atmospheric sciences into the future. Specifically, this study will consider the following questions: 1. What are the most effective activities (e.g., research, facilities, technology development, education and workforce programs) & modes of support (e.g., individual principal investigators, university-based research centers, large centers) for achieving NSFs range of goals in the atmospheric sciences? 2. Is the balance among the types of activities appropriate and should it be adjusted? Is the balance among modes of support for the atmospheric sciences effective and should it be adjusted? 3. Are there any gaps in the activities supported by the Division and are there new mechanisms that should be considered in planning and facilitating these activities? 4. Are interdisciplinary, interdisciplinary Foundation-wide, interagency, and international activities effectively implemented and are there new mechanisms that should be considered? 5. How can NSF ensure and encourage the broadest participation and involvement of atmospheric researchers at a variety of institutions?
