The NSF Section for Arctic Sciences, Division of Polar Programs (PLR)
has released a revised Arctic Research Opportunities solicitation
(13-592), with full proposals due Friday, 6 December 2013 at 5:00 p.m.
proposer’s local time. NSF invites investigators at U.S. organizations
to submit proposals to conduct research about the Arctic. Arctic
research includes field and modeling studies, data analysis, and
synthesis about the arctic region.

The goal of the NSF PLR is to gain a better understanding of the
Arctic's physical, biological, geological, chemical, social and cultural
processes; the interactions of oceanic, terrestrial, atmospheric,
biological, social, cultural, and economic systems; and the connections
that define the Arctic. The Arctic Sciences and other NSF programs
support projects that contribute to the development of the next
generation of researchers and scientific literacy for all ages through
education, outreach, and broadening participation in science,
technology, engineering, and mathematics. Program representatives from
polar and other non-polar NSF programs that support arctic research
coordinate across NSF, including joint review and funding of arctic
proposals and mutual support of special projects with high logistical
costs.

Full Proposal Deadline: Friday, 6 December 2013 at
5:00 p.m. proposer’s local time

information, and program descriptions, is available at:
