Please distribute to interested parties. Thank you.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Department 
of Commerce, intends to award up to $1,500,000 in FY 98 to support 
proposals that will permit the capture of unusual environmental conditions 
or impacts associated with El Nino.

The purpose is to take advantage of the unusually strong El Nino signal
expected over the next few months and gain understanding of how this
signal influences critical environmental processes.

In other to implement activities in time to study the winter signal, 
generally the portion of the ENSO cycle with the strongest impacts on the 
48 states, a rapid review process has been established.

The deadline for proposals is November 19, 1997, with final decisions on 
awards made by December 1, 1997.

The Announcement of Opportunity is posted on the Office of Oceanic and
Atmospheric Research Home Page at under "El Nino
Announcement of Opportunity."
