2. ADVANCE: Increasing the Participation and Advancement of Women in Academic Science and Engineering Careers (ADVANCE)
Sponsor ID: 19-552
National Science Foundation (NSF) Varies
15 May 2019:Letter of Intent May 2019 Adaptation and Partnership competition 22 May 2019:Full Proposal Adaptation and Partnership (FY 2019 competition) 03 Jun 2019:Full Proposal Catalyst The NSF ADVANCE program contributes to the National Science Foundation's goal of a more diverse and capable science and engineering workforce.[1] In this solicitation, the NSF ADVANCE program seeks to build on prior NSF ADVANCE work and other research and literature concerning gender, racial, and ethnic equity. The NSF ADVANCE program goal is to broaden the implementation of evidence-based systemic change strategies that promote equity for STEM [2] faculty in academic workplaces and the academic profession. The NSF ADVANCE program provides grants to enhance the systemic factors that support equity and inclusion and to mitigate the systemic factors that create inequities in the academic profession and workplaces. Systemic (or organizational) inequities may exist in areas such as policy and practice as well as in organizational culture and climate. For example, practices in academic departments that result in the inequitable allocation of service or teaching assignments may impede research productivity, delay advancement, and create a culture of differential treatment and rewards. Similarly, policies and procedures that do not mitigate implicit bias in hiring, tenure, and promotion decisions could lead to women and racial and ethnic minorities being evaluated less favorably, perpetuating historical under-participation in STEM academic careers and contributing to an academic climate that is not inclusive.

11. Great Lakes Protection Fund
Great Lakes Protection fund Varies
Prototype Solutions for Big Challenges Here at GLPF, we like to get to the root of a problem and find (and fund) the actions that lead to improvements. We recently put out a call for ideas to address what we feel are the important challenges facing the Lakes: increasingly large rain events, under-investment in water infrastructure, nutrient pollution and harmful algae blooms, threats posed by potential and existing invasive species, and adapting to the demographic and economic changes in our region. The responses were eye-opening and impressive, and we have invited full proposals from several teams, but we’re not done. We’re continuing to look for action-oriented strategies (perhaps combined) that can address some of our root problems, such as: managing water in real-time, integrating natural and built water management systems, designing pay-for-performance financing, or harnessing machine learning and autonomous control. Within these strategies, we know there are game-changing solutions that will demonstrate improvement to ecosystem health and show growing impact by the time GLPF support expires. We want you to help us uncover them. The key word here is action—it’s in our mission. We don’t fund research reports that sit on shelves. Showing how these strategies can be done, in real places, is more powerful than desktop research, policy analysis, or planning activities alone. We aim to launch projects that ultimately will have an outsized return for the ecosystem. And by outsized return, we mean impact. Significant, measurable, ecological improvement. The Lakes as a system should benefit from our investments. Not one beach, not one watershed, or even just one lake—it’s a system and we want solutions that apply that type of thinking and can realize improvements at a region-wide scale. To get a region to change, or a system to change, it can take a lot of people. Somebody has to have The Big Idea, and if that’s you, we need you to find and lead a team of people who will help make your idea important to the region and impossible to ignore. That’s what we mean by collaboration. The most successful teams combine technologists, conservation leaders, water managers, academic talent, commercial partners, and local governments to test and evaluate their strategy and drive change at the scale necessary to create system-wide impact. That can be a lot of people, but it needs to be the right people. We can help you find them. We are always looking for project teams that are willing to try something transformational, engage people who have never likely teamed up before, and build solutions that make better sense to everyone. The challenges we face are big and we know we don’t have all of the answers, but we are always open to solutions—please don’t wait for an rfp to contact us. If you want to explore an idea—even if it may not seem to fit with these challenges—or discuss a potential project, email us at startaconversation@glpf.org. We encourage you to start with a conversation even before you think about submitting anything to us.

22. ROSES 2019: Physical Oceanography
NNH19ZDA001N-PO
National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Science Mission Directorate (SMD) Due 2019-06-27
NASA's Physical Oceanography program supports basic research and analysis activities that enable development of NASA's current and future physical oceanography satellite missions and the scientific interpretation of data from them. The primary centers of support for the Physical Oceanography program are the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory Earth Science Directorate and the external (non-NASA) scientific community. This announcement serves as the vehicle for participation in the Physical Oceanography program for all institutions. The primary scientific thrust for physical oceanography at NASA is toward understanding the ocean's role in climate variability and its prediction. Since the general ocean circulation plays a critical role in the global heat balance and materially changes atmospheric properties through air-sea exchange, understanding and modeling the state of the coupled ocean-atmosphere system are fundamental to climate studies. NASA utilizes the unique vantage point of space to enable rapid collection of global ocean data sets and contributes significantly to the World Climate Research Program's Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR) Program (http://www.usclivar.org).

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Science Mission Directorate (SMD) Due 2019-07-11
Abstract Proposals are solicited for science investigations that utilize data from the Soil Moisture Active-Passive (SMAP) mission (https://smap.jpl.nasa.gov/). The Soil Moisture Active-Passive mission primarily uses passive (radiometer) L-band microwave remote sensing to determine the land surface soil moisture and freeze/thaw state. These measurements will advance the study of the water, carbon, and energy cycles, both individually and at their points of interconnection. SMAP was launched as a result of the recommendation from the National Research Council report Earth Science and Applications from Space: National Imperatives for the Next Decade and Beyond (http://www.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=11820). The objective of this solicitation is to select research projects that will respond to the Decadal Survey outlined science priorities for the SMAP mission, as well as enable pursuit of new methods of exploiting SMAP's observations for Earth System Science. These priorities and possibilities include, but are not limited to: 1)Enabling advances in the study of the water, carbon, and energy cycles, especially on those topics that deal with the intersections of these cycles. 2)Exploring the impact of soil moisture variability and its role as the 'memory' for the land surface, on weather and climate. 3)The role of soil moisture in floods, droughts, agricultural productivity, and public health related concerns (e.g., vector borne diseases).
