The National Science Foundation has released a Dear Colleague Letter (DCL): Signals in the Soil (SitS). The SitS initiative aims to encourage convergent research that transforms existing capabilities in understanding dynamic near-surface processes through advances in sensor systems and dynamic models via the submission of Early-Concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) proposals for early-stage, high-risk, high-reward research on technologies, models, and methods to better understand dynamic soil processes. In addition, for proposals that include topics relevant to both this DCL and the NSF "Rules of Life" Big Idea, submissions of Research Advanced by Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering (RAISE) proposals are encouraged. Researchers who are interested in more information or in submitting a SitS EAGER or RAISE proposal must read document NSF 18-047 (https://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2018/nsf18047/nsf18047.jsp?org=ECCS).
