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.




Within the oceans and on land, microbes exert their impact through active interactions with earth materials (including minerals, rocks, hydrates, soils and dust).  Proposers should seek: to increase our understanding of microbial processes at the interface with such materials; to elucidate the geologic record of microbial activity at that interface at any time scale including the co-evolution of the geosphere and  biosphere through such interactions; to better understand the impact of microbes on biogeochemical processes operating at that interface; or to develop new methods and research techniques for the study of geomicrobial processes.
