Hi, Astrid, would you please post this notice on the CEDAR newsletter.    Thanks,       John


The National Science Foundation (NSF) has released a Dear Colleague Letter (NSF 16-144) announcing its intent to release a Solicitation in the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2017 regarding future continued operations of Arecibo Observatory under substantially reduced funding commitment from NSF.

NSF is currently preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate potential effects of proposed changes to operations at Arecibo Observatory. The upcoming Solicitation will run concurrently with preparation of the EIS with the intent of informing the decision-making process for future operations of Arecibo Observatory.

John W. Meriwether, PhD
Program Director, Geospace Facilities
