Critical-Zone Collaborative Network

NSF seeks proposals to establish an adaptive and responsive research network that supports investigations of the Earth’s Critical Zone.

This network will consist of two components that will work together to advance knowledge, education, and outreach in this convergent science:1) Thematic

Clusters of fixed or temporary locations will conduct basic research on significant, overarching scientific questions concerning the structure, function, and processes of the Critical Zone.

These U.S.-based Clusters could include existing observatories engaged in collecting environmental data, other monitoring locations that have been in operation for extended periods of time, and new sites that will support the scientific goals of the Cluster;2) A Coordinating Hub that will oversee the compatibility and archiving of the data resulting from the Thematic Clusters, coordinate outreach and community-building activities, support the use of network facilities by outside researchers, and plan for infrastructure needs of the network.

This solicitation invites proposals for either of the two components:
1) Thematic Clusteror 2) Coordinating Hub.

The Thematic Clusters will carry out interdisciplinary research on scientific questions and manage part of the network infrastructure; the Coordinating Hub will serve as the national center for the network.

The infrastructure of thenetwork will be accessible to other research teams pursuing research in the Critical Zone.
