Important Notice to Proposers
A revised version of the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG), NSF 13-1, was issued on October 4, 2012 and is effective for proposals submitted, or due, on or after January 14, 2013. Please be advised that, depending on the specified due date, the guidelines contained in NSF 13-1 may apply to proposals submitted in response to this funding opportunity.
Please be aware that significant changes have been made to the PAPPG to implement revised merit review criteria based on the National Science Board (NSB) report, National Science Foundation's Merit Review Criteria: Review and Revisions. While the two merit review criteria remain unchanged (Intellectual Merit and Broader Impacts), guidance has been provided to clarify and improve the function of the criteria. Changes will affect the project summary and project description sections of proposals. Annual and final reports also will be affected.
A by-chapter summary of this and other significant changes is provided at the beginning of both the Grant Proposal Guide and the Award & Administration Guide.
The purpose of the Collaboration in Mathematical Geosciences (CMG) activity is to enable
collaborative research at the intersection of mathematical sciences and geosciences, and
to encourage cross-disciplinary education. Projects should fall within one of three
broad themes: (1) mathematical and statistical modeling of complex geosystems, (2) understanding
and quantifying uncertainty in geosystems, or (3) analyzing large/complex geoscience data sets.
Research projects supported under this activity must be essentially collaborative in nature.
Research groups must include at least one mathematical/statistical scientist and at least
one geoscientist. Proposals that address problems with relevance to global change and
sustainability are especially encouraged.
