New Coastlines & People Dear Colleague Letter

Coastlines & People

Coastlines & People


April 30, 2019

A new Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) relating to Coastlines & People, or CoPe, has been released by NSF's Directorates for Geosciences (GEO), Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences (SBE), Biological Sciences (BIO), Engineering (ENG), Education and Human Resources (EHR) and the Office of Integrative Activities (OIA). 

Through CoPe, NSF is interested in supporting projects to build capacity and explore research focused on understanding the impacts of coastal environmental variability and natural hazards on populated coastal regions. This DCL announces opportunities for RCNs, EAGERs, conferences and INTERN supplements. CoPe projects should explore the complex interface between coastal natural processes, geohazards, people and their natural and built environments. CoPe will include coastal variability and hazards on a range of spatial and temporal scales, from local to global and seconds to millenia, to put current changes in context of pre-anthropogenic changes.

Questions can be directed to NSFcope@nsf.gov.
