Description: Proposals are solicited to supportneeds of the marine seismic research communitythat are currently provided by the specialized seismic research vesselR/VMarcus G. Langseth. The vesselis owned by the National Science Foundation and operated bytheLamont Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University (LDEO).NSF has determined that the current operational modelis unsustainable and,with this solicitation,seeks proposalsthat provide comparable access to marine seismic capability through innovativeapproaches to R/V Marcus G. Langseth use or by other means. The successful proposal will be administered as a Cooperative Agreementoverthe five-year period of performance.
