Important Information for Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) (NSF 17-1), is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 30, 2017. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 17-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
Antarctic Integrated System Science (AISS) supports research that contributes to a systems-level understanding of:
- The Antarctic system as a whole (e.g. ocean, ice, land, atmosphere, biosphere interactions);
- The Antarctic system's interactions with the broader Earth system;
- A regional or localized Antarctic system (e.g. the McMurdo Dry Valleys, a subglacial lake system).
In addition to projects that require fieldwork that crosses or combines disciplines, AISS supports modeling efforts that synthesize existing knowledge of how the Antarctic system operates across spatial and temporal scales.
