National Science Foundation Dear Colleague Letter: Repurposing the Alaska Transportable Array to Support Observations of Arctic Environmental Change
Through this Dear Colleague Letter (DCL), the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Section for Arctic Sciences (ARC) of the Office of Polar Programs announces its interest in proposals to repurpose a subset of stations of the Alaska Transportable Array (http://www.usarray.org/researchers/adopt). ARC recognizes the potential value of the Array to support observations of long-term environmental change of the Arctic. This DCL encourages proposals to modify and operate a network of stations with a view to provide long-term environmental observations.
