A new NSF Dear Colleague Letter (NSF DCL 24-016 https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2024/nsf24016/nsf24016.jsp) has been posted inviting proposals for seafloor geodesy field campaigns to deploy transponders from an existing instrument pool for 4 sites at tectonic settings consistent with priorities as identified in the 2021 Community Workshop report on Seafloor Geodesy (https://www.seafloorgeodesy.org/post/future-directions-in-seafloor-geodesy-2021-community-workshop). Of particular interest are proposals that target volcanic processes, transform processes, plate motions, or polar regions. The geodetic instruments have a depth limit of 3000 m and a multi-year deployment is envisioned with requisite wave glider surveys.  Projects can be PI-driven or Community-driven.

Proposers should contact program officers Gail Christeson gchr...@nsf.gov or Michael Jackson meja...@nsf.gov early in the proposal development process for seafloor geodetic facility budget preparation guidance. Proposals should be submitted by February 15, 2024 for full consideration.
