In October 2018, NSF implemented the Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance (DMARC) email changes required by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to improve email security. Some email routing practices (such as auto-forwarding to personal email accounts and sending messages through third-party providers) may cause messages to be flagged as potentially fraudulent by DMARC security checks and blocked. If your email is auto-forwarded to another account, such as a personal email account, you may not receive emails from NSF in that forwarded account. More information about DMARC and email delivery from NSF.

Important Information for Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 19-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after February 25, 2019. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 19-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
The Antarctic Glaciology Program(AG) program supports field, laboratory, remote sensing and modeling projects to understand the history and dynamics of the Antarctic ice sheets and ice shelves. Work on previously collected data and ice-core samples is encouraged. Proposers should investigate the utility of existing samples available from individual researchers and repositories such as the National Ice Core Laboratory (NICL) and the Antarctic and Arctic Data Consortium (A2DC).
Emphasis areas include but are not limited to:
- Analyzing newly drilled or existing Antarctic ice-cores to advance knowledge of global environmental change;
- Using ground-based measurements, remotely sensed data, and numerical modeling of ice sheets, glaciers, and ice streams to advance understanding of ice-sheet dynamics and subglacial hydrology;
- Studying the evolution of glacial activity over the last few million years, as preserved in land-based sediments and exposed in outcrops;
- Organizing planning activities for future ice-core drilling programs.
