Geomorphology and Land Use Dynamics

Due Date: 12/31/2017

The National Science Foundation’s Geomorphology and Land-use Dynamics program supports innovative research into processes that shape and modify landscapes over a variety of length and time scales. The program encourages research that investigates quantitatively the coupling and feedback among such processes, their rates, and their relative roles, especially in the contexts of variation in climatic, biologic, and tectonic influences and in light of changes due to human impact.

Projects may employ any combination of field, laboratory, and computational studies with observational, theoretical, or experimental approaches. Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research proposals, as well as those involving international collaboration, are welcome.

Applications are accepted anytime.
