Life in Extreme Environments Announcement of Opportunity for FY99

Date: 
22 December 1998

Dear Colleagues:

The FY99 Life in Extreme Environments (LExEn) Announcement of Opportunity is
now available on the web at: http://www.nsf.gov/cgi-bin/getpub?nsf9943. The
Deadline for the submission of proposals is March 5, 1999.

There are two new additional areas of emphasis for FY99: a particular
focus is placed upon the development of methods and capabilities to
facilitate LExEn research and there is a new effort, in cooperation
with NASA, to begin long term studies over decadal time scales at
representative examples of significant extreme environments.

If you have questions about this new competition please contact one
of the Program Officers listed in the announcement.

Good Luck!

Mike Purdy
