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. It is the responsibility of the proposer to ensure that the proposal meets these requirements. Submitting a proposal prior to a specified deadline does not negate this requirement.


This solicitation invites proposals aimed at closing significant gaps in our understanding of the complex relationships between and within the global water and carbon cycles. In particular, we seek proposals that cross the interfaces of land, atmosphere and oceans. Proposals should span traditional interdisciplinary boundaries and should not duplicate efforts currently supported in NSF core programs as determined by discussion with one or more of the cognizant NSF Program Officers. Studies of related biologically or geochemically reactive substances will be considered only if they pertain directly to the carbon or water cycles. Proposers are strongly encouraged to contact a Program Officer to discuss their proposals before submission.
