Important information for proposers

All proposals must be submitted in accordance with the requirements specified in this funding opportunity and in the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) that is in effect for the relevant due date to which the proposal is being submitted.

Transport and Transformation Processes over Continental Shelves with Substantial Freshwater Inflows


Coastal ocean regions with large freshwater inflows are major gateways for the transfer of materials from continents to oceans. Thus, it is important to understand how processes on shelves with large freshwater inflows affect cross-margin transport of biologically, geologically, and chemically important materials. This announcement, offered under the auspices of the Coastal Ocean Processes (CoOP) Program of NSF/OCE, calls for proposals investigating processes that control buoyancy-driven systems influenced by freshwater inflows.
