--------------------
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has released Program Solicitation
NSF 13-576, entitled "Paleo Perspectives on Climate Change (P2C2)." The
full solicitation can be found by clicking on the '13-576' link at:
http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5750.

The goal of research funded under the interdisciplinary P2C2
solicitation is to utilize key geological, chemical, atmospheric (gas in
ice cores), and biological records of climate system variability to
provide insights into the mechanisms and rate of change that
characterized Earth's past climate variability, the sensitivity of
Earth's climate system to changes in forcing, and the response of key
components of the Earth system to these changes.

Important scientific objectives of P2C2 are to:
- Provide comprehensive paleoclimate data sets that can serve as
model test data sets analogous to instrumental observations; and
- Enable transformative syntheses of paleoclimate data and modeling
outcomes to understand the response of the longer-term and higher
magnitude variability of the climate system that is observed in the
geological and cryospheric records.

This program is part of the Division of Ocean Sciences (OCE) Ongoing
Special Funding Opportunities.

Full proposal deadline: Tuesday, 15 October 2013.
