NSF seeks research related to Navigating the New Arctic

February 26, 2018

Arctic change will fundamentally alter climate, weather, and ecosystems globally in ways that we do not yet understand but that will have profound impacts on the world's economy and security.

Navigating the New Arctic (NNA), one of 10 Big Ideas for Future NSF Investments, embodies NSF's far-sighted response to this profound challenge. NSF will build on its leadership in supporting Arctic science and observations to advance understanding of and predict the rapid and complex environmental and social changes in the Arctic region and to provide the tools and knowledge that will enable resilience for a globally-significant part of our world.

NSF invites proposals in FY 2018 that will advance NNA research through convergent approaches to emerging scientific, engineering, societal, and education challenges, and builds upon the NNA awards resulting from the FY 2017 DCL on Growing Convergence Research at NSF
