Arctic Research Opportunities

NSF 13-592

Full Proposal Deadline(s) (due by 5 p.m. proposer's local time):
     December 06, 2013
     October 20, 2014
     October 18, Annually Thereafter

The Section for Arctic Sciences (ARC) in the Division of Polar Programs (PLR) invests in scientific research about the arctic region and provides operational support for arctic research activities. Science programs are suitable for disciplinary, multidisciplinary and broad interdisciplinary investigations directed toward both the Arctic as a region of special scientific interest and a region important to the global system.
A definition of the Arctic is provided by the United States Arctic Research and Policy Act (ARPA) of 1984 Section 112 (http://www.nsf.gov/od/opp/arctic/iarpc/arc_res_pol_act.jsp). As this solicitation values studies that link arctic phenomena and the arctic system to lower latitudes, the ARPA definition should not be viewed as constraining the work proposed; however, the proposal must contain a clear statement of how the proposed research will increase our knowledge of the Arctic and, if applicable, its role in the global system. In this solicitation we refer to the Arctic not just as a place, but its natural and social systems.
