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.


Within the oceans and on land, microbes exert their impact through active interactions with earth materials (including minerals, rocks, hydrates, soils and dust).  Proposers should seek: to increase our understanding of microbial processes at the interface with such materials; to elucidate the geologic record of microbial activity at that interface at any time scale including the co-evolution of the geosphere and  biosphere through such interactions; to better understand the impact of microbes on biogeochemical processes operating at that interface; or to develop new methods and research techniques for the study of geomicrobial processes.
