New UNH research inspired by the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens will help scientists measure, and thus predict the movement of, tiny particles such as ash from volcanic eruptions.
“Tiny volcanic ash particles enter the atmosphere and can be transported long distances causing all kinds of problems, from becoming an aviation hazard to affecting respiratory health for both humans and animals,”...
At the UNH Woodman Horticultural Research Farm, a facility of the NH Agricultural Experiment Station, a team of researchers led by geneticist Tom Davis are investigating the potential use of a wild, weedy, locally adapted Chenopodium species as a breeding partner with quinoa in an effort to "re-domesticate" quinoa into a form suitable for crop production under Northern New England’s growing...
NSF's Division of Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences (AGS) will eliminate target dates for three solicitations in the Geospace Science Section:
Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions (CEDAR)
Geospace Environment Modeling (GEM)
Solar, Heliospheric, and INterplanetary Environment (SHINE)
Although these programs traditionally accepted new proposals throughout the latter half of...
The Division of Ocean Sciences, NSF, is pleased to announce that they are partnering with the Office of Naval Research (ONR), NASA, and NSF’s Office of Polar Programs (OPP), via the National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP), in a Broad Agency Announcement regarding three ocean research and technology topics of mutual and emerging interest. Up to $18.5 million over five years may be...
In a Dear Colleague Letter dated June 27, 2017, the National Science Foundation's Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) announced that there will be a one year hiatus in the acceptance of proposals to the cyberinfrastructure for the geosciences (Geoinformatics) program.
Effective immediately, new project proposals will not be accepted in 2017 while the Geoinformatics program undergoes review.
