MCM LTER Research Proposals

In 1993, the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica was selected as a study site within the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) Network. Historical context for the McMurdo Dry Valleys LTER program can be learned through our successfully funded proposals, listed here in reverse chronological order starting with our most recent renewal proposal (MCM6; submitted in 2022) and ending with our original research proposal (MCM1; submitted in 1992). Note that some proposals were funded by multiple grants due to mid-cycle changes of the lead PI and/or hosting institution.
