Amendment 2: Updated text for C.13 MFRP

The Mars Fundamental Research Program (MFRP) seeks to sponsor the best and most innovative scientific research concerning atmospheric, climatological, geologic, geophysical, and geochemical processes on Mars. The program offers opportunities for Mars research beyond those available from analyses of spacecraft data alone.

This amendment presents the final text for MFRP. The major change to the text is the explicit incorporation of reference to the recent planetary decadal survey. The due date for MFRP Notices of Intent and proposals remain unchanged at May 6 and July 8, 2011, respectively.

Questions concerning MFRP proposals may be addressed to: Mitchell Schulte by e-mail or (202) 358-2127.
