Deadline: Rolling

Grant amount: Unspecified amount

Fields of work: Atmospheric Sciences

Applicant type: Organizations

Funding uses: Research

Location of project: Anywhere in the world

Location of residency: United States


NOTE: Full Proposal Accepted Anytime. There are no deadlines or target dates for proposals sent in to any of the Geospace Section core programs. However, we recommend that PIs try to submit proposals early in the fiscal year.

Supports research on the magnetized plasma envelope of the outer atmosphere, including energization by the solar wind; the origin of geomagnetic storms and substorms; the population by solar and ionospheric sources; the origin of electric fields; the coupling among the magnetosphere, ionosphere, and atmosphere; and waves and instabilities in the natural plasma. Also supported are ground-based observational programs at high latitudes and laboratory experiments applicable to the geospace environment. Theoretical research programs may include numerical simulations using a variety of MHD, hybrid and particle codes. The analysis of data from all sources, whether ground-based or from spacecraft, is also supported.
