GHEA: Arctic Research Opportunities: NSF deadline- Nov. 10 - 2010

GHEA poster: Ben Fitzhugh

Summary

The National Science Foundation (NSF) invites investigators at U.S. organizations to submit proposals to conduct research about the Arctic.  Arctic research includes field and modeling studies, data analysis, and synthesis about the arctic region.

The goal of the NSF Division of Arctic Sciences is to gain a better understanding of the Arctic's physical, biological, geological, chemical, social and cultural processes;  the interactions of oceanic, terrestrial, atmospheric, biological, social, cultural, and economic systems; and the connections that define the Arctic. The Division of Arctic Sciences and other NSF programs support projects that contribute to the development of the next generation of researchers and scientific literacy for all ages through education, outreach, and broadening participation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Program representatives from OPP and other non-OPP NSF programs that support arctic research coordinate across NSF, including joint review and funding of arctic proposals and mutual support of special projects with high logistical costs.
