NSF is seeking proposals for a Facilitator of Marine Seismic Capabilities. The Facilitator (either individual or group) will support the needs of the marine seismic research community for access to acquisition of long-offset and deep-imaging 3D seismic data using a large tuned source. The Facilitator will work with researchers in identifying suitable vessels (commercial, foreign academic, or other) to support NSF-funded seismic research projects. The Facilitator will also be responsible for arranging and negotiating competitive lease agreements for marine seismic research activities that have been determined by NSF to be high priority projects following the merit review process. The proposal submission deadline is April 10, 2020.
