Arctic Observing Network: The National Science Foundation (NSF) invites investigators at U.S. organizations to submit proposals for projects that will contribute to the further development of the Arctic Observing Network (AON) and enable the Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH). Compared with much of the rest of the Earth, the Arctic is a data-sparse region where large, rapid and system-wide environmental change is occurring. The goal of AON is to enhance the environmental observing infrastructure required for the scientific investigation of Arctic environmental change and its global connections. This solicitation invites proposals for the following activities: -- continuation of existing NSF-supported AON projects; -- the initiation of new AON projects; and -- projects that address environmental observing system coverage, design and optimization. AON encompasses physical, biological and human observations, including indigenous knowledge, of the land, ocean and atmosphere (to a maximum altitude of ~90 km, i.e., the top of the mesosphere). Proposals must include a scientific rationale that includes an explanation as to why the proposed activity, data (including frequency and duration of observations) and geographic location are essential to research that will advance the understanding of Arctic environmental change. Proposals for the research, e.g., data analysis, data synthesis, process studies and computer modeling, that will lead to understanding of Arctic environmental change will not be considered.
