Atmospheric Chemistry

Important Information for Proposers

Any proposal submitted in response to this funding opportunity should be submitted in accordance with the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) that is in effect for the relevant due date to which the proposal is being submitted. The NSF PAPPG is regularly revised and it is the responsibility of the proposer to ensure that the proposal meets the requirements specified in this solicitation and the applicable version of the PAPPG. Submitting a proposal prior to a specified deadline does not negate this requirement.

Supports research on atmospheric gases and aerosols, including sources and sinks; transport and chemical reactions of atmospheric species; atmospheric photochemistry; heterogeneous reactions; and aqueous-phase chemistry and aerosol processes.

Synopsis

The Program supports research on the sources, sinks, transport, and transformation of gases and aerosols in the atmosphere through models, observations, and experiments, including homogeneous and heterogeneous chemical reactions, emissions, deposition, atmospheric oxidation and photochemistry, aqueous-phase chemistry and aerosol processes; the formation of new particles and secondary organic aerosols, the modeling of atmospheric chemical processes, the study of chemical mechanisms in the atmosphere, optical properties of gases and aerosols, and improved methods for measuring the concentrations of trace species and their fluxes into and out of the atmosphere. The Program encourages principal investigators from a wide variety of institutions and backgrounds to submit proposals.
