Request for Statements of Interest in Active Participation: The CRONUS-Earth Project is still in the preliminary planning stages. The United States National Science Foundation, the European Commission research organization, and other international scientific funding agencies are being approached for funding through coordinated proposals. We feel that a combined figure of ~$8M U.S. over five years is a realistic target. We would like to assess the degree of interest in participation in the proposed CRONUS-Earth Project, and begin the preparation of an integrated proposal for funding. If you are interested in participating, please prepare a one-to-two page prospectus stating the goals of the research you propose, a brief summary of the methods to be employed, and a preliminary budget. Proposed projects should in general fit into the research plan described above, but if you feel some important approach has been neglected, please send a prospectus and rationale for why it should be included.
Please email Fred Phillips (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like your name added to this list.
Wild, Eva M.
