Solicitation  06-514

Important Information for Proposers

A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 16-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 25, 2016. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 16-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.




This solicitation invites proposals aimed at closing significant gaps in our understanding of the complex relationships between and within the global water and carbon cycles. In particular, we seek proposals that cross the interfaces of land, atmosphere and oceans. Proposals should span traditional interdisciplinary boundaries and should not duplicate efforts currently supported in NSF core programs as determined by discussion with one or more of the cognizant NSF Program Officers. Studies of related biologically or geochemically reactive substances will be considered only if they pertain directly to the carbon or water cycles. Proposers are strongly encouraged to contact a Program Officer to discuss their proposals before submission.
