The Instrumentation and Facilities Program (IF) in the Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) supports acquisition, development, and access to analytical instrumentation required to foster research and research training in the Earth sciences by U.S. academic and research scientists. EAR/IF will support meritorious requests within and across a broad range of fields in the Earth sciences including but not necessarily limited to: biogeoscience, geology, geochemistry, geodesy, geodynamics, geomorphology, geophysics, hydrology, limnology, mineral physics, mineralogy, paleorecords research, paleontology, petrology, remote sensing, sedimentology, seismology, stratigraphy, structural geology, tectonics and volcanology. The program will consider proposals for: (1) the acquisition or modernization of research equipment, (2) the development of new instrumentation, analytical techniques and/or software that extend current research capabilities in the Earth sciences, (3
) the support of shared facilities that make complex and expensive instrument systems available on a national or regional basis, and (4) the support of research technicians.
