Although the amount of the award is contingent on the availability of funding in the federal budget, NOAA said it anticipates that up to $32 million may be available annually.
Total NOAA funding is variable from year to year and is based on the number of projects the university proposes and NOAA approves.
"Improving our understanding of the Earth system is critically important as the build up of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is forcing changes in all of its processes," said Robert Detrick, assistant NOAA administrator for the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research and chairman of the NOAA Research Council.
"The University of Colorado has been an excellent partner to NOAA in pursuing this mission," he added.
