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.

Opportunities for Research Collaborations Between the Mathematical Sciences and the Geosciences


The purposes of the Collaboration in Mathematical Geoscience activity are: (A) [Interdisciplinary Group Research Projects] to enable collaborative research at the intersection of mathematical sciences and geosciences, and to encourage cross-disciplinary education through (B) [Interdisciplinary Post-graduate Summer Training] summer graduate training activities and (C) [Interdisciplinary Post-doctoral Research] opportunities for interdisciplinary post-doctoral research. Research topics under (A) should fall within one of three broad themes: (1) mathematical and statistical modeling of large, complex geosystems, (2) representing uncertainty in geosystems, or (3) analyzing large geoscience data sets. Research projects supported under this activity must be essentially collaborative in nature. Research groups must include at least one mathematical scientist and at least one geoscientist.
