Important Information for Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 22-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after October 4, 2021. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 22-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
The Tectonics Program (TE) supports a broad range of field, laboratory, computational, and theoretical investigations aimed at understanding the evolution and deformation of continental lithosphere and how deformational processes have modified the lithosphere through geologic time. Because understanding such large-scale phenomena commonly requires a variety of expertise and methods, TE supports integrated research involving the disciplines of structural geology, petrology, geochronology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, geomorphology, rock mechanics, paleomagnetics, geodesy, and other geophysical techniques. Proposals to elucidate the processes that act on the lithosphere at various time-scales, either at depth or the surface, are encouraged.
