The scope of this Program Solicitation encompasses innovative basic research that contributes to an enhanced understanding of the water cycle and its function as a transport agent for energy and mass (water and biologically/geochemically reactive substances). Proposals giving specific attention to (1) mass and energy transfer across the interfaces between land-atmosphere, land-ocean and ocean-atmosphere; (2) research that crosses traditional NSF Division (Atmospheric, Earth and Ocean Sciences) boundaries; and/or (3) research that crosses disciplinary boundaries with appropriate research teams are especially encouraged. This Solicitation encourages investigators to integrate research and build interdisciplinary research teams to pursue topics that cannot readily be addressed by individual core programs within the National Science Foundation.
